I built a computer about four (4) years ago and would like to upgrade some of the components because they are starting to fail. Here is my current setup:
HDD - Western Digital 250 GB 7200 RPM SATA CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz Memory - 3 GB Crucial Ballistix (1 GB ea) DDR2 SDRAM 800 (PC2 6400) Motherboard - EVGA A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i Power - Thermaltake 850W Graphics - EVGA 8800 GT SLI Case - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black / Aluminum Monitor - Samsung 22" WS Black 2ms
I'd like to re-use the following components:
Case - Possibly
HDD - Possibly
I'd like to keep upgrade cost around $1,000 US. I'll be using this PC for coding and occasionally a PC game. I'd be interested in a SSD, but it isn't a hard requirement. I need at least 8 GB of RAM. Also, I want a second monitor which will be 22" or more. My current monitor is not HD, it uses DVI.
