My computer has stopped working and I don't have a lot of free time to figure out what's wrong and fix it. I'll be coming into some money at the beginning of June when I get my summer stipend. I've been thinking about upgrading and just replacing some of the parts. I'm sure that my case/hard drive/PSU are fine.
My Current Build:
MB GIGABYTE GA-EP43-DS3L 775 P43 RT
VGA SAPPHIRE 100242L HD4850 512M RT
MEM 2X2G|MUSHKIN 996587 R
PSU CORSAIR|CMPSU-650TX 650W RT
CPU INTEL|C2D E8400 3G 775 45N R
HD WESTERN DIGITAL 750 GB
I'll probably have $300-$500 for an upgrade. What do you guys think? Upgrade or try and replace the faulty component? I'm thinking about changing out the cpu, mb, ram, and adding a 4850 for Crossfire.
