Oooh yeah...




So, if I have an E8400, a Radeon 4870, a Vertex 2 SSD, and 8GB of RAM, what do I need to upgrade next? I play computer games and like to be able to play whatever I want at 1680x1050. I'm thinking that I should buy a 5850 or a 5870 when the price drops a bit?

It just seems wrong to ruin something like that for no real reason, other than to profit

I cannot wait to upgrade from my E8400. It's still a great chip and will continue to serve me well, but man, the performance jump should definitely be noticeable.

Is there any reason to buy the K variant if I don't play on overclocking it? It seems like these don't overclock particularly well anyway. EDIT: that was a really stupid question. ignore me, I just woke up
