My System Specs

Default

Nothing after the newness where off,You have a PC that is a hair faster and wondering why did I spend all this money when my i7-920 could have lasted another couple of years.But I had it over three years and wanted some new toys and the reviews were showing it to be quite a bit faster .But that was with a stock i7-920,once you overclock it then the difference gets very small.I wish I would have just sold all of my GTX-470's and bought 2-GTX-660-TI 3gigs and a 256gig SSD drive.Then I would have been set for probally another three years.I really thought the ivory-bridgr-E would have been out by October and now it looks like it may never come out,if it does it will be at the end of next year.Then they may change the socket again.That really suckks because that was going to be my last upgrade for a while and now I doubt that we will ever see it.It is getting where upgradeing your video card is just a waste maybe always has been when you just game at 1920x1080.But I don't regret this upgrade because my three GTX-470's sounded like a jet.
