Need Help With New Build

I made a build about 6 months ago ( http://pcpartpicker.com/p/18YTx ) and its good but my motherboard really takes up a ton of space in this case. Because of that i had to take out one of the hard drive bays so i could get all the wires through. Now I need more space for hard drives and i want to upgrade to the CORSAIR 900D. When i upgrade cases though, i want to upgrade other parts too like the psu, cpu, more memory, actual liquid cooling with tubes and stuff, etc.... The thing is i love my motherboard to death( seriously the thing is a beast) but i dont really like all the other components and want to slowly upgrade them. could someone please tell me what i could upgrade to that would be better like an I7, bigger PSU, maybe another graphics card, etc...Also if i could save some money or reuse or sell some of my current parts, that would be great too. If someone could please help me it would be much obliged!!!

Thank You,
John

More about build
  1. What exactly are you asking? What other parts you can add to the current build or what you can replace them with?
  2. What I can replace some of my parts with to make my computer even better. P.S. money isnt really an issue but what kinda guy doen't like to save a little cash ;)
  3. I know that you might not want to, but you could do what I did. I ended up going with a motherboard that is PCI2.0 vs the 3.0, the benchmarks are almost the same and only spent like $200 on it. Then I used the extra money and put it into my processor and gfx. I bought a AMD FX-8350 4.0ghz and a Radeon HD 7950 which is a 3gb graphics card. I max out every game on ultra, and on very high when im running 3 monitors in eyefinity with a 6048 x 1080 resolution.
  4. But i wanna kepp my maximus v formula
  5. What makes you want it so bad? Just a question of why that one vs another one? Lmfao
  6. Because its pretty much the best part and i want to upgrade all my other stuff to make my build better
  7. like should i get an 17 4700k or another graphics card, a higher voltage psu???
  8. Ahh, well you might want to just use the stock cooler vs going with liquid cooling and then go with a higher watt PSU. Your running a 500w power supply with this build. And unless your overclocking, I doubt you will need anything more than the stock cooler. Id recommend getting a 750w psu or more. Expecially because your considering upgrading. The moment you throw a second gfx card in there, your going to need a new powersupply. Might be able to find ram for cheaper too. Try and buy stuff on sale, I extreemly recommend NCIX.com. They have stuff on sale for nothing all the time. I got my ram cards, 4gb x2 DDR3 - 1600 for $60 vs the $110 your looking at. Also unless your planning on watching blu-ray (although I never really cared for it) theres no point in spending $56 dollars for a dvd drive if there's not a need. You can get them for $20, and I bought mine locally.

    With the mid tower, its going to be tight trying to fit components into it. Hes going to have no room when he upgrades. Idk to me I always go with a full tower.

    I don't think so. I mostly use midtower case, in this everything fits easily. I never feel anything is tight or something like this. By the way You can go with full tower case but your little budget will increase to $30-$50.
    I hope u can manage.
    Thank you.
  12. Thanks to all of u but the build i listed is my current build, not what I want to get
  13. Best answer
    Ahh well, get a bigger psu, like the one I listed. Then add a second graphics card, shouldn't need to upgrade the processor for a while.
  14. Ok thank u so much
  15. What about ram?

    To be honest you don't really need more than 8 GB of ram. If you really want to you could upgrade to 12GB or 16GB by either adding another 4GB DDR3-1600 or a 8GB stick.
