What to upgrade next?


I want to upgrade my computer spec over Christmas (I know it's a long time off but I'm starting to think about it) and I can't upgrade every component, so what to upgrade?!

My current spec is;
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (@3.2GHz - could over clock, but have stock cooler)
6GB Corsair XMS 6 at 1333MHz..
ZOTAC GeForce GTS 250
Western Digital Blue 1TB, 7200RPM, 6GB/s.
Then a rubbish Optical Drive I'm not bothered about upgrading..

Just want some opinions on what you'd upgrade.

Thanks in advance :D

More about what upgrade next
  1. The graphics card is the first thing you should upgrade. It's just a rebranded 9800GTX+. Everything looks okay though.
  2. Any idea what I should upgrade it to..? I'm lost in a mine field of GTX 480's.. 580's.. 6950's.. 6970's... God, It's confusing.
  3. Depends on your budget. Although, since the radeon 7000 series is going to come out by q4 2011, i really am not sure but I'm planning to upgrade my 9800gt to an AMD 6850.


    $130 dollars after rebate.
  4. So you'd get a 6800/6900 after the big price drop..? Which one of those would you recommend?
  5. and aren't the GTX 460 and GTX 480 supposed to be great..?!
