I can get a p35 board very very cheap and I can also pick up a Q5500. Based on your opinion I will buy them tomorrow them as my pc is falling apart very quickly and its driving me mad. The only issue is the card. Im leaning towards the 4870x2 but my head tells me to go for the GTX 260 and ride it out.
Thanks again for your valuable input.
np and everyone knows u meant Q9550.
