My System Specs

Exclamation What to do! ?

Hey guys,

Well by been lucky ive now the proud owner ot two new motherboards

Foxconn Flaming Blade GTI Intel X58 (Socket 1366)


Gigabyte GA-P55-US3L Intel P55 (Socket 1156)

Now im not sure what to do,go the I7 + Tripple channel ram route,which is costly...or go the I5 760 route with Dual channel ram,Which is still expensive.

The I5 route + 4gb of 1600mhz of ram would set me back 220 or so..

But something inside me is saying its just not worth spending all that money for these two reasons...

1.Intels releasing new skt soon.
2.current setup is powerfull enough,not enough gain.

Btw this is my current setup.

Q6600 @ 3.5Ghz -Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme
Asus P5Q-SE P45
4GB Ocz Gold Series| Asus Xonar D1
Palit GTX 460 768mb (851/1702/2023)
OCZ Vertex 2 60Gb SSD | 500+250Gb Hard Drives
OCZ StealthXStream 600W Modular
Coolermaster CM690 (Window Modded)
Windows 7 Home Premium X64 Bit.

what you think i should do guys? just sell both boards?
