Default Re: Thoughts on Potential Upgrade(s)?

Thanks again for all the help. Just ordered a 250GB 850 EVO and 12GB of DDR3 (4GBx3). I figured the price wasn't too much more than the 8GB so would just stick that in and be good with it. Once I get those up and running I'll look into OC and a liquid cooler.

What's worse now is I am getting a bug to do another fresh build with the latest and greatest components! I don't NEED that level of performance right now, but it would be fun to do another build. I suppose I should be thankful that my current system from 2009 can still perform pretty well.

Yea I wish I would have had an i7 920 or 960 when I first went Intel because I never would have dumped money into anything else after that.

I'll be away this weekend but now I've gotten the urge to put the 920 into use, maybe when I get home Sunday I'll get to work on moving all the files to the storage drive, I'll SLI my two Vtx 470's in it, won't be a gaming beast but will work well enough for what I want it for.

New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB 1600 (2x8gig) - SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250 -Seagate Barracuda 3-TB

Antec 200 - I7-920 - ASUS P6T - Corsair TX650 it's old but still kicking like a mule
2-EVGA GTX 470 in SLI- ocz vertex 3 SSD 128 gig
Seagate Barracuda 1-TB - OCZ DDR3-1600 12 gigs 3x2
Keeps Me Happy :lol:
