What best to spend $300 on? Tags: Components Product Last response: September 22, 2010 5:44 AM in Components Share dark ice September 20, 2010 11:48:02 PM Ok to start off here is my current rig: Case: RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB Black CPU: Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.8 GHz RAM: 6 Gb DDR3 1600 MOBO: EVGA E758-A1 (which is about to be replaced through EVGA Step-Up) Storage: 1 Tb Western Digital 7200 rpm HDD GPU: 2x nVidia GTX 275 SLI w/ 1x nVidia 9800 gtx+ as physics processor PSU: 850w Corsair Peripherals: Logitech G11 Keyboard Logitech G5 Mouse Creative Fatality MKII Headset The rest is pretty irrelevant. So I recently ended up with $300 of credit with Newegg due to a mixup of parts, and am now trying to figure out what to spend it on. Please note also that I am limited to nVidia cards as my mobo supports SLI and not Xfire. :\ EDIT: I lied! Just happened to read the features of the board and it does support Xfire, awesome . My thoughts: I was thinking of getting a SDD? However, I'm not sure of the real performance increase I will see with a SDD. (I would put my OS and mainly used applications on it of course). Also thinking of upgrading to a g15 keybarod and g9 mouse. Buddy of mine has both and I tested em out and I like them much, much more than my current. The other option (and I think probably the immediately obvious one) is to grab another 6gb of RAM, which if I got the keyboard/mouse I could also grab the 6gb of ram and call it good. Anyways, thoughts, ideas, opinions would be awesome. I have this weird nagging at the back of my head like I'm not thinking about something that could be awesome to get!
