I'm planning to upgrade my mobo into either a EP45-UD3P or EP45-DS3R. I dunno which is better but I'm thinking of the UD3P. Here's my question, is it worth to upgrade and invest on a 775 mobo or just save more money and grab i7 rig?
Well, your E8400 is still a pretty good processor, if your planning on doing video encoding or heavy tasking a i7 will be a good investment. If your doing general use like internet browsing or gaming your E8400 is sufficient enough. And yes, a P45 board is a good idea, I had one and it was great.
