    Well my friend, since the other guys arent listening. I would go with the 3600x2 and clock it like no other. As for the board i would say the asus if you can get the open box before its gone. If not the I would say the dfi. dfi alwasys clocks well and is a good board all round. Besides i know how you dont care to much for asus. I hope thats been helpful over the intell lovers.

    You already got a s939 system.. whats the point of getting a new amd system that is 95% the same in performance?

    And wait for dualcore until it really is dualcore time (in terms of gaming performance), since you arent rich.
    Get 1gb more and wait until crysis/ut2007 comes out, then you should buy a dualcore cpu.

    Ur just wasting your money really.
    The performance difference with DDR and DDR2 isnt very big and makes no difference in games.

    Like i said many times before:
    If you have a64 singlecore (s939) or better, no need to upgrade.
    If you have under a64, go for it.

    however, Asus is defitenely the best brand in terms of quality.

    6000mbps to 8000mbps (approximately, and depended on ram quality of course) is a very little difference and defitenely not worth +100$.

    And you can overclock a little more, but thats it.

    Why are you looking at SLI boards?With a x1900xt you should be either looking at a single gpu board or a crossfire.

    Well idk my friend has built his system with a x2 4200+ oc'd to something this is what he gets in syntetic tests
    [​IMG]
    i only score 9666/8217
    [​IMG]
    i get 4554/4581

    i kno these are only syntetics but thats got to translate to some what of a performance boost :ying:

    Of course, thats the difference between dual and single.
    But like i said before, theres no games using dualcore properly yet, so theres no point in upgrading since you already got a good performing singlecore cpu.

    All you need is more ram so it wont bottleneck ur gfx.

    Good suggestions by Nexus, but i would still get a Western Digital 320gb KS instead.

    Related to dualcore, like i said earlier, when it comes to games, not until crysis/ut2007 comes out.
    And even then the singlecore should be able to run fairly on these games.

    Of course dualcore is always useful but not really worth upgrading for as it is now.

    ill go with ur guys suggestions... gonna get a 2gb kit to add to my 1 gb kit then get a new hdd and cooler for my x1900xt... cause i was looking at some graphs and in some cases during games the single core bet out the dual kinda weird though.


    i like how nexus just tells u whats good for u LMAO

    i advice u to stay away from windsors. i have so much issues, they have some kind of wall that prevents you to go pass 2.8ghz. but as for brisbane, they are great from what i heard.
