Default Re: Need opinions...

I'd wait it out until the Q9450 (January) and 9 Series (February) come out.

Sell your rig to the mainstream market once you're ready to upgrade. Most noobs will be impressed, and you can sell it for 75% or more of what your originally paid for it. I wouldn't be surprised if you can get back the money you spent on it in full.

I sold my $590 rig for $700 after one month's use...

What sort of case do you have? and how much did you initially pay for that build?

i agree with nosboost, my card is the best and im planning on getting the q9450 anyways and crysis is the only game i strugge with.

I guess ill just stick with the rig i have.

My case is the coolermaster 690, i paid around $1500 before rebates.
