Really don't want to replace mobo and mem to go i7 but if intel is leaving 775, maybe its something to think about. Would like to keep the cpu cost under $350 and I'm not making any moves this minute. Just planning for 2-4 months down the road.
My only worry about quads is weather or not I'll be about to get back to 3.8G that I'm now at. I hear it’s pretty tough to get a quad past 3.6G. And yes, they are great on the synthetic benches, but in real world gaming, their full power it not used. From my benches and researching online, I match most quads now with equal graphics. Can the new 45nm quads oc like us 45nm core2's?
