Ok, here is my question...

I just reciently upgraded to a 8800GTS G92 from a 7600GT and I am loving the POWA!

I am already looking to upgrade even more, so what should it be? Here are my systems specs:

C2D E6600 @ 2.815 GHz
2 GB 800MHz RAM
Vista Ultimate 32bit
EVGA 8800GTS G92
EVGA 680i
Dell 22" widescreen

Stand by for the poll!


Feel free to post other options... :D

I voted quad, you should probably wait for the cheaper quad penryns eventually.
Meanwhile you can throw in another 2GB of ram, I'm sure Crysis wouldn't mind.

I voted for quad. One of the new 45nm quads (or even the new 45nm duals) should reach pretty ridiculous clock speeds which will round your system out nicely.

EDIT: Whoops. I see you have a 680i.

Nevermind the 45nm quad then...

The EVGA 680i won't run Yorkfields. It'd say RAM for sure (and Vista 64). Also what's with the low CPU OC, get it tweaked up :D

I've still not seen any benchmarks with a Wolfdale on a 680i chipset. I've had a really good look, nothing.

Oh yeah, Raptor HD gives a nice boost. On the other hand, another GTS would booooost ya games! :D:D
