I've changed my game plan, just a tad. Instead of tossing out my old parts, old CPU, RAM, Mobo, PSU etc I'm going to salvage them, I'll take my mobo, cpu, ram, psu and main drive from my old set up into a newer, cheaper case and add in a $50 video card along with a $20 DVD burner. I plan to give them each a boost in HDD space in the future, giving each of them a 1TB HDD and I'm going to invest in an external 2TB HDD to link between my Main Rig, my Secondary Rig and my Laptop.
Also was thinking of placing my OS for my Main Gaming Rig onto a 32GB SSD, can anyone tell me if this would be a good idea or if I should just use my old PCs secondary 500GB as my main drive?
Also my Secondary rig will have the following specs: Asus M3A Mobo, AMD Phenom X4 9600 BE, 4GB RAM, 1.5TB HDD space and a $50 to $70 video card. Speaking of that, can anyone here recommend me a decent video card for that price range?
Can anyone recommend me a good video card in the $50 to $70 price range?
Also I'm stuck on a decision. I'm wondering if I should put my new parts into my old case, an Antec 900, or put them into a newer case and leave my old parts in the Antec 900.
Though the original idea I had was to put the new parts in my old Antec 900 and put my old parts into this case: Newegg.com - NZXT M59 - 001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Anyone have any recommendations? I was something that will keep good airflow and let me show off my parts, so a completely clear side is a plus. Thanks. Would prefer the case to be between 80 to 120.
