I am going from a 4200+ with 2 OC xfx 7800gtx cards on a Asus an8-sli to a e6600 and 1 8800gtx on a evga 680i what proformance incress can I expect.
10% 50% 100% this is mostly a gaming system and for the sake of this discussion lets assume both systems at a 10-15% overclock on CPU and RAM

You Would see a large percentage Increase with that New system compared to your old specs.

The E6600 in General is a much better CPU than the 4200...Thus will give you an increase in generall overal system performance. In games also especially pared up with the 8800gtx

You could upgrade but why? Your old systemspecs are fine if you ask me

But well a E6600 is a very good processor and the 8800 speaks for itself of course.

Check futuremark.com ORB and compare your system with the one you want to get by using "project search and compare". Then youll know. Its hard to tell without hard numbers.

But if you want my advice: wait a little before you upgrade and get a not so power hungry second generation directx10 card. Your system now is better then most members have

Im not poor lol, could upgrade to c2d if i want
just cant justify the money until prices go down.

Yea that system is going to beat your old system to a pulp.

But i wouldnt expect too much of a performance gain in most games as i can run most max now. However with the release of new games you will see a huge performance difference.
