Hello I have a HP P6-2143w pc that I gutted and put into a HAF 912 case with a GTX 560 gpu and a GS800 psu (being replaced for 850HX because defective). I want to upgrade and try to get all the HP parts back for resale. Im looking to upgrade my CPU to the i5 3570k. Is there anything that would be better around the same price? If i d go with the i5 3570k what would be a good motherboard to go with it? I would like the MOBO to be easy to overclock my cpu as Im trying to get into overclocking. I would like to stay in the $350 range give or take $20. Also if you have any other suggestions on RAM and Hard drive and Im not sure if I should get a SDD. The rig is going to be used for gaming. I also recently upgraded to Windows 8 will I be able to keep it or will i have to purchase it again? Here all my system specs.
I got the GS800 at a very good price almost free and it was making a loud buzzing noise so corsair is replacing it for HX850. And I will later be upgrading my GPU or adding another GTX 560. And will Windows 8 stay on my HP and the build with new CPU and MoBo or will I have to uninstall from HP?
