Higher end system Tags: Homebuilt Components Systems Last response: November 28, 2012 7:51 PM in Systems Share Pelazi November 28, 2012 2:15:06 PM I was wondering what component I should upgrade on my current system. This is 100% for gaming - WoW D3 CoDs etc Setup: Motherboard: ASUS P8P67M-PRO HDD: 128 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD + 2TB 7200(just for movies,pics) RAM: 8GB OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 VIDEO: ATi Radeon 6870 I'm assuming that the video card is the lowest of everything, I could always overclock a bit but I was getting BSOD a year ago when I tried.
