Upgrade Tags: New Build DDR2 Systems Product Last response: November 23, 2011 5:29 AM in Systems Share realibrad November 1, 2011 12:52:11 AM 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?
