I think 'New build' is probably the most appropriate place to put this. Basically I am planning on upgrading my pc again. I use it mainly for gaming and video making. Firstly here are my current specs:

AMD FX-4100 @3.6Ghz
4Gb Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 (2*2Gb)
Nividia Geforce 9800 GT
Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600 AAJS 160 Gb HDD

I have an idea of what I want to upgrade to, but I wanted to see what people thought. I'm trying to not spend >~£650 as that alone is hard enough to save atm. Anyway here is what I'm thinking of upgrading to:

Intel I5-3570K @3.4Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
8Gb Corsair DDR3 Vengeance (2*4Gb)
Nividia Geforce GTX 580 Twin Frozr II/OC
Sandisk Ultra, 120Gb SSD

Only thing I would probably be keeping from my current pc is the HDD for extra storage. All programs and OS would go on the SSD. I don't know if its necessary to know, but I'm running a 19" monitor with a 1440*900 resolution.

Thoughts and opinions on my proposed build are very much welcomed. :)
