    Hey all.

    Planning an upgrade and was after some advice/recommendation.

    Budget £500 but able to stretch if worth it.

    Current rig - Q6600, 8GB, Asus P5B-E Plus, 7300le (looking to replace - CPU, RAM, MB, GPU)

    Mostly used for audio recording, sample playback, virtual studio type stuff but all round use too.
    Would like a bit more beef in the GPU department for occasional 3D blasting and HD movies etc.

    Intel I7, Phenom X6 or AMD FX???

    I'm a bit behind on the current breed so uncertain what the general thoughts on these are.

    Thanks in advance for your time and patience.
