Currently used for gaming, watching blu-rays and general internet browsing. Currently my budget is around £200. I am not sure what component to upgrade next. I'm thinking on the lines of an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE. I want to hold out on a SSD until prices drop and capacity increases. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx in advance.
