Your system looks like a fairly recent build. I remember it was not too long ago when you started getting it together. Are you sure you want to get an overhaul on that already? Unless you're just building a completely different new system of course, in that case, wait a little bit. New stuff are coming out late this year and early next year. Time will come by pretty darn fast.

im gonna have to agree with ISOwner. I would wait until upgrading is more worthwhile because IMO, going from an AMD 4200 X2 to a Q6600 is not really not much of a step. Yeah it's faster but if I were you I would be waiting a while longer, at least till next year, before i upgrade.

I'm going to try playing that new Crysis game on my AMD machine . Your setup isn't too bad compared to mine. At least you have the dual core CPU. I'm still running single core.
