Hey! first post on here, and i was wondering what kind of upgrades would you do with a PC like the one i have now. Not too sure what kind of improvements i can make with a ~200 dollar budget. And your thoughts on it too would be nice.

PSU: OCZ ModX 600Watt
Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V LK
Ram: Corsair 16GB @ 1600 1.65V, 4 sicks at 4GB a peice
CPU: Intel 3570K overclocked to 4.7Ghz
SSD(Boot&drivers/IDE's): Intel 330 series, 120GB
HD(Data/Steam): Seagate 1TB 7200RPM.
GPU: Gigabyte Windforce Geforce GTX660
CD: OEM Liteon
Case: Thermaltake Dokker(Thinking of getting one of the new Thermaltake Urban Cases or the Thermaltake Soprano)
Heatsync: Coolermaster 612 - using MX-4 thermal paste
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit OEM
Monitor: Acer LED Backlit 1600X900 @ 60Hz
Keyboard: Razer Arctosa
Mouse: Razer Death Adder Black Edition

this is not my first build, this is more like my 6th. Its my main computer, i use it for everything basicly.

    Buy a better monitor, a 1080p one, you have everything in terms of components, get an 1080p ips monitor there's the Asus
    VS239H-P, for less than 200$.
  2. I was thinking of a monitor, but what about a smaller one like a 21.5" i have used 23" monitors and found that i really like the smaller ones.
  3. There's a good one at that size from lg :
  4. concur with django

    get a better monitor

    and some 1.5 volt RAM
  5. not a bad panel at all. Whats the difference from 1.65V ram and 1.5V? my ram in total was about 60$, Not bad if you ask me.
  6. It's recommended going with 1.5v with ivybridge cpus.
    This ram is a dual channel kit with 16GB :
    With the code promo it's 79$.
    But it's optional, if your system didn't get any instability, you might skip it.
  7. Ahh, i would have done that when i was building if i knew it.... i have not crashed once with this computer surprisingly, so skip that; Will my GTX660 be able to do BF3 at full HD? Or am i just asking a stupid question.
  8. Yes, at least with more than 40 fps.
  9. Ok! once i get my tax returns, ill be orderin that monitor, and thanks for the help!
  10. with 1.65 volt RAM you have no warranty on the processor
  11. Do you have proof to back that claim? I dont really think it would matter....

    and i also got most of my parts at Microcenter(although the 2nd ram kit came from Newegg).
