New Build, What is keepable and what should i get? under 500,

Here's what I've got now, looking to upgrade to something for a little bit better gaming. Current system runs SWToR perfectly fine, as well as Tribes:Ascend decently; just looking to future-proof as much as possible on a budget and maximize graphics settings in Tribes/Rift.

Asus M3A78-EM
AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition
4GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Apevia case and 500w power supply (keepable)
WD Caviar, DVD Rom, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard are all keepable.


Any suggestions?

  1. I hate Apevia cases but if you want to reuse it go ahead. You might want to look at upgrading your PSU at some point, though - I've never trusted cases with built in PSUs.
