i need some advice about this PC i'm purchasing
Ok my current PC has:
- EVGA 780i SLI MoBo
- Q6600 Quad core CPU
( Which only works with 3 cores, if i try to enable a 4th core windows 7 crashes whenever it loads / previously on XP always BSOD) on 3 cores 85% of the time it loads windows
- EVGA 8800 GT SuperClocked edition
- GIGABYTE 750W PSU
( and it sucks, only has 2x 8 pin connectors )
- OCZ 2x 1 GB ram DDR2 800 MHz
( it looks exactly like Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR10664GK
-i got a Sony 24x DVD writer
and i got 3x WD HDDs
all at 7200 RPM ( 2x 500GB ) (1x 1TB )
now for my potential upgrades
-EVGA P55 FTW MoBo
- i7 870
( which has the same price as an i7 860, wierd )
- GTX 470 card
( already bought this )
- my old 8800 GT as PhysX card
- 850 watt PSU
( maybe higher ??? )
- Ripjaw series 2x2 GB ram DDR3 1333 MHz
( is 4 GB enough?? and is 1333 MHz good ? )
these are the ram in case you were wondering Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL
Now for some questions:
1- Should i buy an X58 MoBo for the 8x ATA connectors and the 3.0 USB support ?
2- What kind of PSU to support my system, Overclocking my CPU to about 3.5 GHz and MAYBE OC my GPU, also supporting my PhysX card, the 3 HDDs , DVD drive and ram sticks.
3- does this combo work well with eacother ?
I appreciate any help, thank you in advance.
P.S: I don't wanna spend over 1.2k in cash.
