    Re: CPU upgrading

    I pretty much hold onto processors until some sort of disaster forces me to upgrade (or until it's not keeping up with what I'm trying to run). Honestly, the former is the more frequent, of late. ...

    Re: Intel or AMD

    If you want to have the fastest processor possible, Intel. If you want to get the best value for your money, AMD.

    That's really all there is to it.

    GPUs are the biggest component to running a...

    Re: Will I gain many fps upgrading my cpu?

    If you're not noticing any performance issues, the only compelling reason to upgrade is if you're a nerd and just want to play with new hardware for the sake of it. It's a small price to pay to...

    The G700 ended up winning out after checking them out at the store. It's a good mouse, but they really need to work a bit on their software. I still highly recommend this mouse, though. Great...

    Until we get any sort of figures for price or performance, it's really hard to speculate on either. It's interesting to see the 4k cracked into by a stock processor, but will have to wait and see...

    Re: amd cpu upgrade

    I'd say the 970 is fine to stick with, unless your computer is having trouble keeping up with what you're throwing at it. It's a good chip, nice overclocker, and if you're not doing anything...

    Anyone have suggestions on gaming mice? I mostly do MMO gaming, but like the versatility of being able to change tracking speed quickly for FPSes and the like.

    Re: Gaming CPU

    Of those, the 2600 is going to be the best overall chip, in general. But it could be overkill, and you're a lot more likely to have a GPU bottlenecking your system than a CPU.

    Re: Best CPU for $125?

    If you have a particular budget in mind, it's often better to base it on CPU + MB than just CPU.

    There's so much disparity in the prices of different MBs that it's worth throwing the two...
