    Uhm, GeForce 560 Ti is the only card available in Syria from the GeForce 500 Series.

    And, as another thought, I'm thinking of updating my PC completely, so I'm going to buy new stuff and sell my old stuff. Here's what I have in mind:
    Things to buy:
    Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.66 GHz OR an Intel Core i7 for $250-$300
    MSI P55
    2 x 4 GBs DDR3
    ASUS GeForce 560 Ti 1.0 (costs like $400 in Syria)
    500 GBs of HDD (I already have 500 GBs; I want it doubled )
    A 700W PSU (suggest a good one??)

    Things to sell:
    Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83 GHz
    MSI P31 Neo V2
    2 x 2 GBs DDR2
    XFX GeForce 9600 GSO Far Cry 2 Edition 1.5 GBs
    DISCOVERY ATX-450W

    How much money do you think I'll have to pay :s ? And is that "new" rig good for about 3 years?

    ur new rig should cost u around 1500USD approx. and looks good and should serve u well for about 2 years.

    I'm assuming that's WITHOUT subtracting the cash of the things I'm going to sell

    You need a slap if you think your dual 2.83ghz CPU is worse than that i5 2.6ghz monstrosity.

    You don't need intel CPU's, overpriced and not a huge difference in speed compared to AMD CPU's.

    Technically you can get an AM3 CPU like a quad or hexcore AMD CPU with at least 3ghz+ for cheap, and to save more money you can keep your DDR2 memory and get an AM2+ board (AM2 and AM2+ are two different things) they can take AM3 CPU's, obviously before buying check the manufacturers page on the motherboard to see if it supports the CPU your buying and what if any BIOS upgrades you may need.

    Quad not dual
    Uhm, personally, I still prefer Intel. I'm still thinking about an i5 or an i7.
    My main "fear" of AMD is game-hacking issues...

    Doesn't matter the CPU if you hacking a game, name a game that has SSSE3+ instructions in it?

    There really is none.

    Uhm, I don't mean to be stubborn, but I still prefer Intel. Plus, the AMD models here in Syria are VERY LIMITED :/
