Default Re: Upcoming birthday upgrade

I'm not into cars much. I would like to replace my '93 Escort, but it gets good gas mileage, runs, good, and is paid for. I just see this as a chance to bump up to an 1155 platform.

Thanks for that, patonb.

Well, looks like the CPU/mobo upgrade ain't happening. We just can't squeeze it out of the budget.

So... I am looking for suggestions again. I know I want to replace the LED fans in my case (2x120, 1x140) with non-LED silent fans (need suggestions/recommendations).

Other thoughts are a larger SSD (120GB or so) or more storage space or possibly a mobo upgrade (AM3+)

No solid budget right now. I am figuring $10+ for each of the fans.

Bottom line is that I am looking for the best bang for whatever bucks I get to spend.

Why not get a better cooler like an H80 or something like that?

My current cooler does a great job and is nigh silent.
