What monitor do you have, what games do you play? Your current setup is what many consider high end

my monitor is a samsung bw226 22 inch

just got the q9450 installed, wow this quads are good got to 3.8ghz with only 1.2volts

i was planning to change my motherboard and mems to use ddr3 any recomendation, coz im buliding a rig for my brother so i think i'll be using my old processor which is a e6600 core 2 duo coz he doesnt play games

and maybe i'll give him my motherboard and mems, i just dont knw which board at the moments is a good choice that is ddr3 and SLI that is sorta cheap and good so maybe in the future i can do sli

games i play atm are call of duty 4 and world of warcraft
