By the way, at high resolutions, you can get great frame rates in Crysis/2 without buying a Sandy Bridge.
Agreed.. You could overclock the crap out of something with a watercooling setup, I'd just like something more future proof I suppose (I know you cant really future proof pc's much generally speaking though)
Yeah would be buying a seperate video card for gaming - would be far better performance from what I can gather. Hoping to see a bit more than a marginal boost from a normal i5, but regardless only got an overclocked dual core 2.9ghz cpu atm @ 3.3ghz, so ill see an improvement.
Anyone else with anything to add, dont like to go into it blind
