With the new 2011 titles (specially the one we are all waiting for - BF3) which I hope will be worth my cash for a decent PC I'm lurking around trying to figure out which way to go. Will be buying approx on holidays so the relations might change a bit tho I was wondering if I shouldn't at least switch the mobo/cpu/mem part so its not that much cash at once. Almost all time I spend on my home PC is playing BC2. I assume it will be the same case with BF3 and that is my performance meter. Here I picked 3 Quad's that are interesting imho : http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=38512,41316,52210, Core 2 Quad Q8400 775 i7 860 1156 i5 2500k 1155 Quad is old yeah but the $$ is pretty decent. The new 2500K which is new and shiny and the i7 which gives you 8 threads for not much more cash. Which way would you go ? Its just gonna be BF3 + 1920 res + 3D Vision.
