I have a birthday coming up. My wife has been asking me what I want for my birthday. So I am looking for suggestions from the general membership. Here's what I have been thinking about...
I would like to upgrade to an i5 CPU and mobo. But I want to keep the cost to $350 or less (NewEgg). I am not up on what is great in Intel mobos, unfortunately. My requirements are:
- Quad core
- ATX mobo
- Must have at least six SATA ports
- Items must not be in a combo (going to be a month+ before purchase)
I would not mind to move up to a set of 2x4GB or 2x8GB RAM if there's enough of the budget left, but I am good with the 4x2GB I currently have if not.
I have toyed with the idea of moving to a bigger SSD but my mobo does not have SATA6. USB3 would be nice, too, but I don't have anything to use it with at this time.
Other than these I don't really have any needs as far as my computer goes. My 560Ti does everything I need, my case is a good one, I have a great gaming mouse, a mechanical keyboard, and two 24.6" monitors. Heck, I don't have to upgrade to a LGA1155... but I want to do it anyway.
