I think it is time to upgrade some parts of my computer. Here is the basic information of what i currently run. cpu= Intel Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600 (8M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) RAM= 4x Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066 1gb Ram PSU= 850W Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-850 Modular Cables Management CARD= 1gb DDR3 2000mhz engts250 MOBO= ASUS Striker II Formula LGA775 motherboard If need any other info then just let me know, am running XP windows on this old computer and am looking to goto windows 7. With this upgrade i just want to know a few things, should i upgrade to a i5 cpu, whixh means ill need to upgrabe my mobo etc. I am looking to upgrade my ram but not sure about what card i should get. I dont want to spend much over 1000 dollars which i want to include a cpu intel pref, mobo pref gigabyte, ram, windows 7, HDD, dvd writer/blu ray, full tower computer case, maybe a new video card, i hope this psu will be fine so i will leave that. Also my mate has mention something about a solid state hard drive, i maybe looking to run my operating system on this and then go for a 1tb HDD for the rest. Ty for your replies in advance. Oh also i live in Australia so prices may vary abit from overseas but i will worry about that.
