Looking to upgrade Tags: Homebuilt RAM Motherboards Systems Product Last response: May 26, 2008 4:55 PM in Systems Share Nitrousoxide May 26, 2008 4:10:47 PM So I'm looking at upgrading my system. Here's what I'm looking at right now. Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E168... CPU: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E168... RAM: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E168... I'm thinking I can overclock the ram to 1066 to get the full use out of the motherboard's speeds. Other people claim to have been able to. I currently have a Gforce 7800 GT as my GFX card. I'll upgrade that when the next Gforce card comes out and the 8800 GT's drop in price even more. Am I screwing up anything here like clashing compatibility or just making any stupid buying decisions? More about : upgrade modode May 26, 2008 4:15:54 PM Great choices imho. Should be very overclockable and provide high performance when coupled with 8800 or better GPU. ausch30 May 26, 2008 4:38:03 PM Should be a very good system and just so you know there is a 8800GT on Newegg for $145 after MIR and I don't think you'll find much better than that. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ask ! Get the answer Nitrousoxide May 26, 2008 4:42:03 PM I was looking around at their 8800's and I saw this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It's about 6 dollars cheaper than the one you listed Ausch, is pre overclocked, and comes with a game. I don't know though. When is the next generation of Gforce GFX card coming out? I would expect the price to drop quite a bit once it is available. ausch30 May 26, 2008 4:55:16 PM I saw that one but it didn't get very good reviews so that's I suggested the one I did.
