Currently I have an intel build socket 775. Im considering upgrading the ram and CPU, however Im also consider upgrading to an AMD.
both of these upgrades give me what I need, I just dont know which is the best route.
Upgrade to current config:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) x2 (8gb total)
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler (only because the stock intels are aweful)
Update to AMD:
ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) x2 (8gb total)
I guess what Im saying here is I dont know how different the two CPU's are. Which one outperforms the other? Ive been out of the loop on AMD's for quite some time now.
