Worth the upgrade?
E8400 OC'd to 4.2Ghz
MSI Cyclone GTX 460 1GB OC'd 900/1050/1800
X3440( seems like a cheap i7-860)
2x2GB Dominators(Or if I have the cash the blue 2GBx4 dominators would nicely)
another GTX 460 for Sli
You guys reckon this would be a smart upgrade instead of waiting for Sandy Bridge? everyone keeps telling me to wait but there always seems to something better coming out next. If I do upgrade I plan on sticking with it for 4-5 years.
depends what you do with it.
try an sli hack first, see if it works ;)
the 3440 is a nice chippie.if you need ht.
for modern games, you would probably see a tangible boost as they would use more of the cores, and the speedier ram would be of assistance.
for the cost? mmm, tough to say. I think it would be worth it to wait for sandy bridge too, and just invest heavily in that. especially if you want it to last 4 - 5 years (but good luck with that) you can at least grab another 460 now if you want though, of course.
