Advice on upgrade

317 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.

Well I want to upgrade to have a better cpu and mostly to have a high-end graphic card, but those FX are so expensive especially here in Canada and so does the X2.
So I thought about the single core cpu because the price is more reasonnable. Still I don't know if going from 2.0GHz to 2.4GHz is enough to justify an upgrade ? And I must switch to PCI-E one day or another.

I guess I'll wait to see the first AM2 mobo come out and watch the price of the new cpu. I feel like I'm caught between two things.
