I have a similar question. I, too, have an old GeForce 8800 GTX video card that I would love to update, but think I'll wait because I'm already running over budget as I revitalize my old computer. I will tell you what I'm getting, hoping for a suggestion or two, and you can tell me if I really need to pony up the cash for a new video card at this point.
-Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000CHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive,
-ORICO PVU3-5O2U 7 USB 3.0 Ports Desktop PCI - Express Card,
-Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz,
-ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX gaming board with double-sided ROG Armor,
-HyperX Beast 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ***SHOULD I GET THE 2400 INSTEAD???
I'm getting some other things as well, but this should suffice for this conversation.
Thanks. My items are at the Newegg checkout....
