if its that new, just upgrade the cpu and mobo, since everything should still support each other

Or go with more Ram unless you've already giged out the Mobo on ram.

everything looks good man, it's not out dated you could upgrade that processor though or overclock it, btw overclocking doesnt decrease life to where it matters, a typical processor under normal voltage lasts 8-10 years FAR longer than it can be used with the growing demand of software, and if your computer keeps getting outdated overclocking is the cheapest solution to getting "higher-end products" ^^

Never Overclocked Overclocking suxs it decreases life
not if you know what your doing, but yes it does a little. But I would trade 600 more mhz for a month any day. I should last for 3 years but before then, you will have upgraded. So overclocking is not for idiots, like you I'm guessing. btw i have a 2400+
