GPU and RAM. RAM is cheaper and apparently is the most affecting performance in this game...

You did not say what your OS, but it must, without doubt, be the Win7




SP!
Yes, Win7 64bit pro

You should fix that first I guess
I actually think it might be 6Gb. I need to check. it was so long ago that I built it, I've forgotten! I put down 4 in case that was it. Seems some people think that bumping up the ram is a better deal. Hmmm...

Bumping up ram has no effect.... its a 32 bit application. it will use at most 2.x gig. the rest will be scratched to you HDD. so HDD is a better upgrade. since you got a pretty nice cpu

Yeah, that's maybe the best decision. I'm getting jumpy about it. It might be the waiting

I may end up getting a new gpu anyway since the 260 is showing its age.

Yeah, kick back and relax and when it's all bells and whistles then think about it.

Anyone know a good guide for overclocking the i7 940?

I've got very little experience with it. I've heard that if you've got good case airflow that you can OC the i7 920/940 a bit without needing anything other than the stock fan/heatsink. Obviously not gonna push 4ghz, but I think you can get it to 3.2 or some such.

I've got a nice roomy Antec P180 case.

Google on overclock, there are many sites with forums for overclockers.

The information on those sites is very up to date on latest equipment too.

OCing is not something you just do :p its a sport... nah its not but you should really read alot about it. I think there is this site called ocforums or somesuch. There's quite a bit involved in ocing your rig stable. trial and error. every cpu behaves differently. even if its the same series and production line then its no guarantee that because person A clocked his cpu to 4ghz on stock cooling that person B gets the same result. It could be that person B gets it stable to 3.750ghz with exactly the same system.

Have fun though. its a cool passtime

Get on overclock.net, BW. You won't find a better place to learn overclocking all at one forum. Well, you have extremesystems.com but they have slower servers.

As for the upgrade, get rid of that GTX260 and slap whatever upgrade you can afford in there instead. Your proc is probably bored.

Do NOT overclock that cpu more than max 200mHz with a stock cooler. They emit heat faster than you can say barbeque.
