Default Re: Thinking of upgrading

yeah, so I should be good with my current PSU?

How is the e7200 better than the q6600?
and is it just preference of which is better between the intel processors and the amd phenom

I think I may have this decided though..

Newegg.com - EVGA 122-CK-NF68-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

grand total of $380, without shipping etc.

Its not, its just cheap which is why people like it, and overclock like their Big Brother Wolfdales

Unfortunately the q6600 is faster than the Phenom 9850

aw ... but I love amd so

My plan with the 750fx board was that I could use my existing am2 and then upgrade to phenom when I got more cash, but I think I might stick it out to get that 680i and a q6600. I'll be using Intel but I am a huge fan of evga boards, so that will keep me at ease.
