Hi all, I am looking to upgrade some hardware on my PC. Currently I have the following:

Case: Antec 900
Motherboard: ASUS M4A77TD Pro
Memory: 2x 2Gb Team-Group Elite DDR3 @1033Mhz
Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.2Ghz
Graphics Card: MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr III 2Gb GDDR5
PSU: Xclio 850w

Since I live in Malta, I can buy hardware from OcUK only since newegg does not ship to Malta.

I was thinking to upgrade to the following:

I use my PC for gaming mostly and am not looking to overclock any time soon. Is it worth upgrading to this setup. I will be keeping my case since I find it's still in excellent condition. Feedback would be greatly appreciated guys.

Thanks :)

you dont need 4 chips with a z77 mb there are only two banks on these new boards a0 and a1. with a two dimm kit you put the dimms in a0 and b0. your not going to lose any speed. you also want to use low profile ram and put an after market heat sink on the cpu. the intel stock heat sinks work but ones like the evo 212 will keep your cpu much cooler when gaming. with ram if the heat spreader are to tall they want fit under some coolers and you lose ram slots.

just make sure you buy a tube of good thermal paste.
