    my head is going crazy thinking about upgrading my computer. which mobo, which processor, hdd, ram, ect. just a moment ago, i figured that if i could compare my computer now, to one i would like to purchase, and see how much of a difference there is, i would know how much i really need to spend, and what to buy, to get to the performance im looking for.

    anybody know of a site that lets you configure two computers, and have them "compete"??

    If you go to the review sites like www.tomshardware.com www.hardocp.com www.anandtech.com www.sharkeyextreme.com

    and look for what you are planning to get, that is probably the best method of comparison. (tomshardware might be best in this instance)

    Alternatively, you could try and find some of those benchmarking sites and look at the bechmark results from various systems (this may not be too safe and accurate a method).
