I'm not getting much this year, however I'm trying to decide which will be a better upgrade. My current specs are: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-UD3L CPU: E2180 2GHz @ 2.66GHz RAM: G.Skill DDR2 1000 @ 1066 5-5-5-15 Video Card: Radeon 3850 512MB Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS (has served me so well... don't plan to upgrade it anytime soon though) Note: Clocks are a bit different than what my sig and forum system specs say.. had to slow them down to compensate for wear. Now I'm trying to decide whether to go just get an i7 920 cpu, motherboard, and RAM, or just go for a high-end graphics card like the ATI 5870. I wouldn't have enough money just from my tax return for the i7 920 approach. However I'm going for a long-term investment so I'd feel I wouldn't have to upgrade my computer for a real long time. Other options I could do is the i5 750 cpu and motherboard and ram and have a little money left over. Socket 1366 motherboards are not cheap, this I know. I do plan to do Crossfire down the road though and I heard the i5 cpu's aren't the greatest to dual card with due to the limited lanes with the on-die PCIe controller. Now what I mainly what I do is play WoW, and as of recently I've been recording our attempts in Icecrown with FRAPS which kinda slows it down. I also play Crysis, and am planning to get Bioshock 2 soon (I really need to get more games).
