Option Im facing is to either get a new i7 intel (920) CPU, x58 mobo (giga UD4P) and 6GB of RAM; and keep my GTX260
Keep current mobo, cpu, etc and do the EVGA step up program and trade my GTX260 in for a GTX295.
I do mostly gaming and have a 24" LCD that runs 1900x1200 res. I do SOME dvd authoring (5% of the time) but mostly nothing that would benefit 4 cores. PSU is not an issue.
thanks in advance!
The 965 is ancient, and the e6600 is obsolete. The gtx260 has life in it. Go i7.
