Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: October 14, 2010 3:37 PM in Systems Share spider2085 October 14, 2010 1:04:02 PM Here are my current PC specs MB: Asus M4A785TD-V CPU: AMD X3 440 (Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro HSF) RAM: 4GB G-SKILL DDR3 1600MHz CL7 GFX CARD: NVIDIA GTX 460 PSU CZ STEALTHXSTREAM 600W CASE: ANTEC 300 (with 3 x Xilence Red Wing 80mm Quiet Fan and 1 x Xilence Red Wing 120mm Quiet Fan) HD: SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3 1TB Misc: NZXT Sentry 2 Fan Controller, Samsung DVD/RW, 1920x1080 Samsung Monitor. 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.
