Cool 96accord, i'll add you. Tnx for your input. As you can see in my System Specs my current PC is not that top of the line so I'll deffinetly see A difference once my new one is built.

I will save a little bit more and go for the i5 750 quad and a decent mobo,that'll keep me for a good few years. I've had my E8200 for almost 2yaers know and it is still going strong only hickup come when I encode movies, then it strains a bit.

Thanks for all your input, will keep everything said in mind when the big day arrives, when i built my first custom PC.

Cheers

I'm looking to upgrade my PC (motherboard/processor) also but my main reason is because my eVGA motherboard's USB ports are not working... I have to use a PCI USB card so my USB mouse, keyboard, ect work...

How often do you play BC2?

A that sucks, my previous mobo also did that, one port at a time..hahha
Well I play about 3-4 time a week, 2hours a shot, I'm studying at the moment and doing practical so my days are quite full.

@ Bill, ja I did at first but the I7 is a little out of my price range so I'll have to pass,thats way I'll go for the i5 and comp. mobo now and then at a later stage I'll upgrade to i7 or to what else is new at the time.

I'm building the whole PC so is gonna be expensive(South Africa ) so no i7 for ma at right now.

I played from about 7:30pm EST til around 10:30pm EST - Had a few good rounds and then got pissed because I was on the shitty team over and over....

You live in South Africa? (PS: Update your profile with your location ) but how is the network speeds over there? Where do you get your parts from?

Sorry for the questions but I'm curious.

PS: Can you PM me details on the new board and processor you are getting? (price.ect)

Thanks

And then when these come out,

Intel Sandy Bridge: Details of the next gen | bit-tech.net

you can do it all over again with having to get a new motherboard to use one.

Stomper,
I would recommend going for the i5-750. It's a current gen quad core that could handle all those apps and games, and it's pretty cheap (about $50 more than the Q8400, depending on where you look). Plus, it overclocks pretty well, if you are into that sort of thing.

Plus, the C2Qs run on LGA775, while the i5 is on the 1156 socket which, along with the 1366 socket (i7), Intel is using now to replace the 775 socket. Good think to keep in mind when thinking about how you might upgrade in the future.

Ok, I have decided to go with the 750.

@96accord., the speeds in SA is crap when you try to join a international server(600ping with BC2), I have a 384kb/s line (30kb dl speed) uncapped which costs allot p/mnth.

We join the Saix gaming servers which is a local server, ping is about 120 on BC2 then.

Regarding the parts a wanna get

i5 750 R2,100 (US$262)
Asus P7P55D LE - Intel Socket LGA 1156 - Motherboard R 1,570 (US$196)

In total I really don't wanna spend more then R12,000 (US$1500) on the PC
