    Default 680I and Upgrading

    I have a 680i right now and I am looking to possibly upgrade. With it I have an e6600 cpu and a Geforce 8800gts. Im thinking of upgrading either to a e8500 or a quad q6600. Will there be a real performance difference? Trying to decide if the price for performance would really be worth it. For the video card thinking of getting 2 nvidia 9800 gt to run SLI. Although still not sure. I have also heaard the Radeon 4850's are a good card to get.

    Should I wait for the I7's? Trying to get best performance to cost ratio. Just not sure what to do. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    Depends on your budget, if you want a total revamp then go with the i7 but you just want an upgrade then i would go with the dual 9800's or dual 8800 and the the quad e6600, with the 6600 you have a total of about 9ghz and with the 8500 you have a total of only about 6ghz and the price is near the same.
