About 2 and a half years ago I built my first gaming computer. Now, since I have some money lying around, I'm thinking about upgrading.
The parts I currently have that I plan on upgrading are:
CPU - Intel Q6600
Motherboard - Gigabyte P35-DS3R
RAM - 4gb Patriot Extreme
PSU - Corsair 520HX (I think?)
The parts I'm thinking of getting are:
CPU - Intel i7 920
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
RAM - Corsair CORSAIR XMS3 6GB DDR3 1600
PSU - Not really sure.
First, would I need to upgrade the PSU? I do plan on overclocking and have an HD5850 and 2 hard drive. I'm assuming it would be a good idea to upgrade it.
Also, I'm open to any suggestions/alternatives for better performing parts at a similar or lower price.
Thanks for your time.
