A e5200 with a g41 chipset wouldnt be a huge upgrade since he wouldnt be able to overclock at all on a g41, hes better off saving up a decent amount and getting a phenom.

Oh right, disregard what I said, I thought I had read he had a 3400+, not 4400+.
Sorry about that.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Its just hard to justify to effort and money for the upgrade when its not really going to be a huge boost and wont last that long at all, i would save your cash for now, you could probably get away with chucking in a 4850 and not having a too big of bottleneck, but imo i would save for a bit.

I suppose I'll save up $500-$800 then see how I go then.
