If you had what I have now (pls see sig), would you upgrade NOW to...

P5K Deluxe WiFi AP motherboard
Q6600 stepping G0
Corsair Dominator 2GB 8500C5D

Or would you wait? for Penryn perhaps? I read the Q6600 is ahead of its time and there is really no real benefit for it right now.

I am not upgrading the VGA because I do not do serious hardcore gaming these days, just video transcoding mostly.

Hardware suggestions also welcome.

Thanks. :)

If you're mostly doing video transcoding then the quad core would give you a nice boost without dishing out too much cash.

I'd buy one and eBay the old CPU...

Don't know much about that mobo and RAM...

you dont need no stinking upgrades, just update the Video card or wait a bit more for the G92 (or whatever it will be called)
