How you guys think this rig will hope up? Tell me what you think, and give any suggestions. I bought the i7, the new RAM, motherboard, and psu. You think I will be able to see a noticeable difference in gaming? Or in anything in general?
More aboutbuild think
I do not think you will notice an improvement in gaming If you use hardware intensive applications like Photoshop and Maya you'll see an improvement in those
You said you plan on upgrading then you said you bought.
If you plan on doing that, STOP. Leave your machine alone.
If you bought that stuff return it. Pure waste of money.
