If you want to get new ram I recomend DDR2 800/Pc6400... And it will be more than 80 pounds (D@mn English lol) to get a decent stick... But you could just stick with Skt 939

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3400Mhz
Asus P5B-E
Samsung 400 GB Sata II
Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 800 5-5-5-12
Zalman CNPS-9700 LED
Antec Nine Hundred
Hp W2207 22" Widescreen Monitor
Windows Vista Home Premium
Silverstone ST60F 600W PSU
Razer Copperhead Tempest Blue Gaming Mouse

I agree with above... Stick with the S939... it'll still be around for a good while, and it's still a fast CPU. If your not into the whole "look what I have this month" thing and not worried so much about how much you can overclock, then stick with something that is compatable with your parts now... You can save up for a new machine come the next gen or later...


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
