Gaining a new set of toys to play with.. (Mobo,CPU,RAM)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So im on my way in selling my current Mobo, CPU and RAM.
Going to switch over and try out the AMD market, also DDR3 and so on.

So i mainly use this PC for media and gaming. But mostly gaming really.
The overclock gained with this is quite respectable, the CPU idles at 21-22°C and yes im still on air, and no i do not live at the artic's

Should i still stay with this setup and like buy a new Q9*** Intel CPU? (they are quite pricey here, but if they perform better thats the way to go)

Or the other end is selling those main parts and going for AMD.
So for gaming is it worth it go with the X6's or stay with some X4's for now?

Here are some links for each list of the specific parts in my local webshop: (Warning, Hungarian site)
Mobo's: http://www.woxcomputer.hu/hardware/a...atipus=324&p=1
CPU's: http://www.woxcomputer.hu/hardware/p...nufacturer=234
RAM: http://www.woxcomputer.hu/hardware/memoria/ddr3.html


I'm just really clueless what some of the new AMD's can do, and would like some experienced people here at OCN to point me the way
What Mobo/CPU/RAM combo i should get from those list's?
And will my current hardware be enough to fully utilize them?

Really looking for the best performace/price combo.

Thanks and sorry for the language misstakes and etc

If your primary thing is gaming, do not go X6. Unless you're going to be encoding, producing, using load heavy software (3d, etc), it'll be a waste of money.

I would just try and stick it out with what you have and see what's out in the summer.

I hope you're not thinking of using any of those low end boards to run the x6...
There really aren't any decent RAM kits for the price either, hm

What about games coming out this year? None of them will actually use all 6 cores? Just wondering about it..

New hardware coming out usually costs way more (at least here) than the ones out for a while. Don't think it will fit in my budget in any way really.
But prove me wrong Have no idea how price varies on AMD's.

And what about X4's or so? I'm looking for about 4 Gigs of RAM for now, just one that would fit nicely with the rest of the setup.

Thanks for the replys, waiting for others
