Advice on upgrade

320 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  laboitenoire
Would it be a bad choice if I choose a 939 cpu right now and keep it for about two years before the next big upgrade ?

I want to get a 3800+ or 4000+, a Crossfire or SLI mobo, 2Gb of ram and a Raptor 150Gb.
I may get a x1800xt CF or two 7800GT or something else I still don't know.

I'm considering the AM2 and Conroe from Intel but since this will be new technology, I'm more bias toward the 939 with a proven chipset.

Thanks for your help.

I doubt that there will be that much of an advantage with am2. DDR2 has crappy timings so I would you're safe to upgrade. Make sure you get a dual core though. Single cores are on the way out.
