Id hold fire on the GPU though, keep your current card until you can put a little more money into your build and then grab a 6870 or even better GTX 560Ti. I don't see a PSU listed anywhere? This is a VERY important factor when upgrading/building. ryoukos October 13, 2011 11:31:36 AM I am going to keep my current PSU which is Corsair 700 W . So you say upgrade all the system leaving old GPU for a few more months and then grab something more powerful ? But i could get 6950 + SSD and then upgrade the mobo+cpu later as well? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
