  1. That's not a brilliant upgrade.
  2. why? it's not worth the money? my friend will buy the cpu, MB, ram... i will just add up $120 to buy all new parts..
  3. There will be hardly any performance gain from this upgrade.
  4. Best answer
    Hardly seems worth the hassle.

    Your rig, as it stands, is still great....so just enjoy it and save your upgrades for when a significant performance jump is available.
  5. May be get a great monitor and speakers.
  6. I got Bose speakers companion 3, but my monitor is 720p, i'll sell it for 1080p.. i guess i will hold the upgrades for now and do my monitor... thanks to all
