    if its got the full cache its not so bad, but a platform change with 4+ cores cant hurt in the mid-term.

    just wondering here.. can you name some games that a 3.8ghz dual core can't handle?

    I can't think of a single game that a dual core like that couldn't handle, given that it's paired with a good GPU. Games really aren't at the point of needing a 4+ core CPU in order to run smoothly, although it helps in certain ones (GTA IV, BC2, etc.).

    Pos I'd give your current setup an 8/10. Smallish screen, amount of memory, and HDD. But, the OC'd i7 adds points and I saw your new case and cable management, it looks really good.
    JrRacinFan and p_o_s_pc say thanks.

    @Joe
    9/10 & 7/10(depending on what its used for)

    GPU ....

    But wait a little tiny bit longer.

    bad company 2 lagged on my 4.2GHz wolfdale in heavy MP matches.
    then again, 2x4870's may have helped cause some CPU bottlenecking.

    Me too on my secondary rig, but it didn't run it well. It really only does run perfectly smooth on quad cores it seems.

    As for you, 8/10

    Need a sound card (a must for a high score), more storage, or better gpu for more points. OCing also worth some pointage.

    I do have overclocks set, just choose not to waste the space with that info :D

    But just for you my friend my clock's are CPU@3.5Ghz GPU@700/999 hence the 3D Mark Score (from my 8800GT ;))

    For you though I'd vote 9, close to 10 - Nobody get's a 10 from me lol, so that's probably the best you'll hear from me, sure look's one super smooth rig!!

    Also upgrading in a few week's to EVGA GTX460 1Gb :D - and PSU around the same time, on that note I do agree about me needing a sound card, this VIA chip is horrible compared to some other onboards I've had in the past. Rant finished.

    7.5/10 for the first one because of the old GPU and the VIA sound card
    6.5/10 for the second one

    9.5/10

    Very nice rig. Once you get that second 5870 and maybe an SSD, then i'd say it's pretty much perfect.

    Errr I hate rating because I tend to think I rate quite oddly sometimes :laugh:

    But for you I'd say 6.5. Sorry if that seem's off to you.

    EDIT: You have no monitor? Also just realised that it look's like you use your rig for a HTPC so depending on your monitor i would possibly give it an extra point ;)

    I do have an overclock and I will have a new card on the way...

    Here's a little of what I said in an earlier post ;)



    And for you I'd rate very very close to 10... but that's because I'm fussy and don't like giving a perfect 10... although deep down I'm sure you know your rig is :laugh: :rockout:

    8.75/10

    New monitor and sound card (no it does not sound fine) for more points.


    That OC + 460 will get you an 8.5. + sound card = 8.75. That 460 is gonna make it one solid all around rig.

    Are you on crack?! gtx460 smokes a 5770 by a long shot. Which rig were you rating?

    @Wile E

    I can't rate you. A 10 is an understatement.
