Hey everybody. If you're bored, let me know what you would do with $1400.

Requirements...

1. CPU: Wolfdale? or something else?

2. GPU: SLI 8800GTS 512MB

3. MB: totally up to you, I have no ideas yet. Must be SLI and Wolfdale compatible.

4. RAM: 4Gs of Crucial Ballistix? or something else?

5. PSU: totally up to you, modular cables would be nice.

I have a case, CPU cooler, HDs, and optical drives so the $1400 is for these 5 things only.
Let me know what you think. Don't you love tax time?!!!!

Stick with what you've got for now. I'm scroungin' to come up with that, wait for the new stuff later in the year.

Sorry for the confusion. I want some suggestions for the 1-5 stuff that I have not bought yet. :pt1cable:

I agree with MrsBytch and chuckm, save that money. You've got a descent machine.

I thought you were thinking of upgrading the rig in your sig, sorry. If you're doing 4 gig of ram look at 2X2 not 4X1. I just wish Crucial would come out with some. As far as I know, none of the 2X2 kits are Micron.

Nope. The rig is for a friend.
