Hi guys, i'd like some comments on what you think i should upgrade next. I seem to have hit a wall before i7. I won't be upgrading anything major for maybe 3 months. I just bought the E3110 and will probably keep it for a while unless a Q9550 would make a lot of difference? I was thinking about a new mobo, but this will work at 500fsb (515 max) and dont really see too many benifits of upgrading before changing to i7. I could get an extra 4gb of ram and take out 2 of the current 4gb to make 6gb. I'm going to buy 2 3000rpm 90mm fans and attach them to the v8 at the end of the month as my cpu is getting close to 70C at full load (when encoding) I was also thinking a second Giga 4850 but they're still pricey where i live, at $210, and my second PCIe slot is only 4x (V1) and my mobo isn't specced as being crossfire capable, i have doubts as to how much more performance i could get out of it. Another option is a 22" LCD and run dual display. Or a new case, although this one is fine for the moment, it would give me some hours of time setting up and modding. I was thinking of spending some money on a WC setup, but as i'm pretty much motherboard restricted as to how far i can overclock i doubt this would help. I would go raid, but i can't buy a raid card in this country! Another option is to buy a gigabyte ramdisk (if i can still find one) and setup my os on it. Or would i just be better saving till i can afford and i7 setup with 4gb DDR3? (about $600) What would you do?
