Hey. I am currently planning a major system upgrade for my computer rig. I just wanted to pass this through a tech forum just to be sure everything works together (Even though I did so, myself) And even get suggestions on a similar product which costs less. So, here's the things I am buying. I'll also state the hardware (From the old, un-updated rig) that I feel doesn't need to be updated.
It doesn't particularly matter what it's called. My point for posting this post was to receive suggestions and to confirm compatibility between the new hardware and the old and if all of that fits together.
All of these upgrades are for the long run. Since my current case doesn't provide the best cooling and cable management, I cannot OC much without overheating. Though, it would be appreciated if someone would suggest a case that features good cooling and good cable management.
$110 on a psu
It's for better Wattage. So, I do not have to change it up with another PSU once I get the extra money for a SLI/CrossFire X Configuration.
$30 on RAM
I currently have about 4 GB of ram. Seemed logical enough to put it up to 8 since I do work with Adobe AE and other RAM hungry programs.
$40 on a cooler
For the ability to overclock. I wouldn't buy this cooler if I wasn't going to overclock my CPU.
As I said, it would be appreciated if I got suggestions.
