My system is looking a little long in to the tooth now and i am looking at upgrading my entire system save my hdd. I really mainly use my system for gaming which goes through to my 40" tv. I know at the moment Intel cpus are a head of AMD but i am looking for value for money but bearing in mind my pc use is pretty singular I don't need to add extraneous bells and whistles i am not going to use. I primarily use AMD GPU's (mainly out of habit and the fact for my price range they seem to be the most competitive.) I couldn't honestly tell you whether the majority of my games are Nvidia biased or AMD. I also have very little desire to use a multi gpu set up so having tons of PCIE slots is not necessary. I have to take the plunge as a complete overhaul is the only real option.
