oafaloaf Posted December 1, 2008 Posted December 1, 2008 ok So I am still running on my old opteron 165 @ 2.6ghz it runs games "well" and the 8800gt's in SLI help but I think I have reached the limits of this comp now I am just debating on which direction to upgrade? (deneb is not an option, or i7) q6600 quad CPU: or E8500 duo BIG maybe but phenom 9950? motherboard is the real headache! I don't want to set record's but I would hope for 3ghz-3.4 with the quad and 3.5-3.8 with the duo I have heard that the 750i sli chipset is terrible for overclocking? any truth to this? should I go intel x38-x48 heard they were stable boards for OC. Asus Intel Board to be honest ram is a little easier for me to decide what newegg has on sell!!! LOL but needs to be overclockable as well. probably g.skill or ocz 4gb 2x4 Crossfire is avalible on a lot of boards standard while just getting a SLI capable board is a pain without a lot of cash im considering selling my two gt's and getting a 4870 512mb ? any ati\crossfire success or horror stories?
