P5NE-SLI with q6600, 4gb ram and an 8800gt
I've just bought a Sapphire 5850 xtreme as an upgrade but from reading on various forums realise current CPU is likely to bottleneck...
For that reason I'm thinking that it might be a good time to start over and build a new rig. The guy (on forum) who had bought the same graphics card had a watercooled q6600 running at 3.4ghz and felt he might have issues - my q6600 is running at stock due to memory issues...
I've an idea that the i5 2500k looks like a good 'bang for buck' cpu but am a bit confused with the difference in motherboards for socket LGA11, should I be going for a P67? I hope to maybe crossfire in the future and go for 1800mhz (perhaps quicker) Ram...any motherboard suggestions or combo deals would be great. Or should I just wait for the next gen cpus?
Thanks for reading, any help to guide my thought processes or deals would be amazing.
