Rig Update?

Recommended Posts

Hello there Guys, I just wanted to get your opinions before I pull the trigger on updating current system hardware. Just to let you know, I happy with my current rig, but I have that crazy habbit that I need to keep it up-to-date with news toys. I just wanted to ask you and have your look at my Rig Config and let me know what I need to update. Thank you for your time and help!

My Current Rig Info:

Case - CM HAF92 (I am not 100% happy, maybe looking for a new one)

PS - Corsair - HX620

Motherboard - Asus Maximus Formula SE (Chiptset X38)

Processor - Intell QX9770 (Quad-Core)

System Ram - G-SKills 8GB

Graphic Card - ATI 5850

Your Thoughs on Updates?

Josh

dude, you are up to date. no reason to change that at all unless you're doing intense video editing. it's a monster already. besides, it's probably idling half the time anyway.

LOL, I agree. But I just feel that I don't have the latest toy. I am pretty sure that some of you get that feeling where it feeling that the Hardware in your PC is Old and needs to be updates. I am happy with my system, just crazy Habbits. So you thinks that I don't need to update anything?

Sounds like you have money to burn. If you can wait a month or three, nVidia will be releasing its next generation video hardware. I would wait.

My feeling isn't to burn cash, I need to save cash. I just want to make sure that I have all the latest toys for my puppy.

lol, well, if you need to save cash, realize that you've got basically got a pretty **** fast rig.

i mean, your sig is out of date, but your rig is recent enough. With a Core 2 Extreme, unless you're willing to toss $600+ to replace your mobo, RAM and CPU....but honestly, not worth it unless you're going to be able to use it (blu-ray video editing or such).

That true, I have been reading around that everyone recommends to wait until next year, when Intel 6Core comes out and so does SandBridge Chipset. I guess the only thing that I can update is SSD.

ya just wait, your computer is very fast as it is.

the amount of money you put into it compared to the performance gain just does not add up.

Point well taken. I will take your advise and wait untill there is something better then my current processor. But I might still look to SSD Hard Drive as a update.
