I partially upgraded my system last year and now I'd like to upgrade the remaining parts.
My "new" things are a Nvidia 560GTX Ti GPU, an Antec 650w ATX12V V2.3 PSU and 2x4GB DDR3RAM.
Unfortunately my motherboard doesn't support the RAM, so they've been sitting in their box this whole time. I want to upgrade my motherboard and my CPU, but I want to make sure the new ones I order are compatible with my purchases from last year.
I've got a $800~ budget and the less costlier the better as I wouldn't mind maybe getting a second 23" monitor.
Then just take of 7950 off my suggestion, about $300 for a CPU and Mobo.
With the saved cash, I would get an aftermarket heatsink so you can overclock and maybe an SSD. Then use the remaining for your monitor.
Alright, I will do that. Thank you so much, manofchalk, King of men.
While we're here though, you've reminded me that my HDD is quite full and a second one wouldn't hurt. Is there any HDD you'd recommend in particular, or are they all pretty much the same (manufacturer wise, I mean, not size because yeah)?
I say HDD over SSD because I think I'll benefit from the space more than the speed, at least at the current prices.
