  1. If that is your current rig...there really ins't much to upgrade outside of perhaps a better graphics card or a larger SSD if you need the space.
  2. How much money do you have to upgrade?
    To be honest, your rig is already pretty solid and balanced and I see little reason to upgrade a part and just unbalance it, it's already going to perform quite well, what do you want to see better performance in?
  3. Upgrade the poor power supply,
  4. Thanks for the feed back I am probably going to swap out the psu with something better and add some custom sleeved cables :)
    Anyone no any good psu's and sleeved cables?

    Sleeved cables ^
  6. if only their prices on sleeved cables wasn't high...the stock cables on the supernova feel somewhat cheapy.
