Upgrading CPU or what?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!I'm now little thinking to have uprade to my PC because I want to have more performace when flying PMDG 737NGX. I have been thinking few options.My specs:P6X58D PremiumIntel i7 950@3,07 ghz with Thermaltake FrioPalit GTX580Corsair 3*2GB RAM80GB SSD for WIN71TB Samsung F3 for other apllications like FSXOption 1. I do something with my old CPU like Overclocking, but is the Frio enough for overclocking? Also I would need very good guide for OC, never done it before?Option 2. I buy new mobo like, P8Z68 Premium or P8P67 Premium. Then I could buy i7 2700k and good cooler (what?). With these upgrades I think that i could have 5ghz?Option 3. There is coming something new in this year and i should wait it.And also regarding to this OC, is there any good sites where is good guide?Best regards,Leevi

Option 1- Yes -- http://www.clunk.org...-beginners.html BTW, the Frio is a decent performer. I had my older i7 960 overclocked to 4.1GHz and 1.34v. You should be able to get similar results. Shoot for 3.8GHz.Option 2- Yes -- Ivy Bridge. Wait for it!
Thanks for these, I'll wait for Ivy and maybe overclock before that.
