So, my DDR2 memmory is starting to throw errors. I would rather not spend $100 on 4gb of DDR2. Im toying with upgrading my system so here is what i have.

Im thinking of getting an 2500k, Z78 mobo and down the line a second 6950.

I cant really see getting another AMD platform when Intel is so far ahead, unless there is a great combo that I dont see.

Budget is somewhere around $400

Any ideas?

Motherboard dfi lp dk 790FX

Graphics Card 6950 factory oc

CPU x3 720 OC (3.4)

RAM 4GB (4x1GB)

PSU Corsair 750W

Computer Case CM Stacker 830

OS SSD 80GB OCZ Vertex

    Then you might need to get a different CPU cooler for OC.
    Cooler Master Hyper 212+ or 212 EVO $27-35
