I've decided it is time to upgrade my system with the following upgrades. My plan is to hang on to the current mboard (P5B) and RAM and upgrade pretty much everything else. Do you think it will all work without any compatibility issues? I have added hyperlinks to all the items of note to make thing easier. If I have missed anything please feel free to ask and I will provide the details.
You only have 2 gb of ram so it will be actually almost cheaper to get a new 8gb set
Do not I repeat not get that cpu Get a i3-2120,i5 2500k or i7 3820 depending on budget if you can go 30 dollars more on the gpu get the gtx 480 but the 6870 is a great card for the i3-2120 if you get the i7 the 6870 will bottleneck it.
