My System Specs


I certainly wouldn't recomend swapping out your E8400 for Quad Core either in "hopes" of a high OC on the Quad Core to justify a 2nd 470 "later on"......something must be up with your E8400 / Mobo / RAM combo to not be able to get that E8400 up over 3.5 Ghz..?....

As 5il stated, likely better off to get a single 480 or a single 470 for now .....with the advent of these High Performance GPU (both ATI / Green), one should really be looking at "upgrading" old Duo Core / Quad Core to I5 / I7 Systems imo, especially if your running 1920 x 1200 Res...

Linus - off topic - any idea when the Evga 480 vanillas will be u for Pre-Order again ;)

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530
