Not sure whats best at this point for me...have looked around on tigerdirect and newegg. Do I go high end 775 with a top quad core and ddr2 or do i go mid level i5 or low end i-7 with ddr3? My current GPU is good enough... i don't play any games on my pc except MVP Bseball 2005 and it doesn't take much to push that game on high. I dont think i will upgrade this mb or cpu again. I will bequeeth it to my son who will be 6 or 7 in a couple of years when it's time to renew again. So future upgradeability is not a factor for my purchase. I just want the best punch avail for my 500 bucks period. All i require is 2 things. SLI on the MB so i can pair my card done the road soon and 4 gigs of ram. All for 500 including tax. Any insight would be nice. Oh yeah... i will still be running XP most likely for some time to come.
