My System Specs

Default

I don't think going from E6750 to E8400 is worth it. OC that chip a bit. Even I managed to get to 3.2 on my horrible mobo and also do a suicide run of 1m super pi @ 3.6 booting xp from a usb since it couldn't lock the pcie properly. In your case, instead of a new cpu could i suggest another 4870?

And I agree with reality, their not worth anything anymore, i 'only' got offered $100 for my e6750 over in offtopic XD
