There's been some pretty good info threads the last couple weeks on upgrades, and I've been looking over the links provided with some success. With tax returns coming within the next few weeks, I'm looking at upgrading my board and processor to get more power behind my geforce GTX295. I'm hoping some of you that are more familiar with current processor tech can help me out with some tips on what to look for. I'm looking to go to a quad-core, with the best board I can get for less than $250. If I can spend closer to $200 that would be best since it looks like I'm going to have to buy more new memory also (just bought 4gb of ddr2 800mhz and it looks like all the quad core boards I'm seeing are ddr3 only) If anyone has any insight I'd appreciate it, I get pretty lost between the Core i series and the phenom 2 and all the available chipsets these days. I long for the days when all you had to look for was nForce 2.
