So as you see I have upgraded everything except for HDD and CPU. I am currently being bottle necked by my CPU and I have my Motherboard Eligible for a Return by the end of the day! So This needs to be quick!
I realllllllly am trying to stop the spending, but here is what I have found: Microcenter has a sale on a
Core i5 2500K LGA 1155 for $159.99. And If I RMA Board, Ill receive $80. And I want to stay as cheap as possible while retaining quality for a motherboard. I HAVE the cash...but dont want to spend more than necessary. What Does everyone think? Smart purchase? Or should I go with another Intel Processor?
The microcenter deal is as good as it gets for a combo; sell your leftover parts and your rma board and it won't cost too much. Just be realistic about pricing; about one third off the original price and you might get some buyers.
