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$.

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.

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.

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.

with 1.65 volt RAM you have no warranty on the processor

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).
