Default Re: Upgradable Gaming Build

hmm, you may have a point there... although, now that I think about it, will i ever even need a new processor in the next few years if I get the i5 750 and overclock it to around 3.4ghz if I get a heatsink for it? I mean, I honestly wouldnt mind the extra 80 for the i7 but all the decent mobos cost over 200+ so I simply can not afford them. I guess it doesnt have to be totally upgradable, I just dont want to have to upgrade my pc in 2-3 years and realize I cant buy anything compatible like my last system is all.
