Thanks everyone for your replies
First off I see SLI is not a recommended choice - why is that? Is it just not worth the extra money?
Do I overclock:
Well, I never really have tried it before, although I am willing to try it
Isn't the hardware life greatly reduced by this, though?
I was just reading up on the ATI HD 4870 graphics card - wow!
This looks amazing
[quote]95% of games ATM run no more than two threads, therefore a quad core cannot be fully utilized and higher clock speeds will yield better performance. An E8400/E3110 is the one to go for.[quote]
Yeah ^^ but I want to be able to run games a few years from now still - surely its only a matter of time before more cores are utilized? ^^
