Im fairly experienced at bulding pcs but I am looking to upgrade my rig and do some overclocking with it. I think I can use salvage a fair amount of parts from my current setup to build a pretty good gaming/media machine but I wanted to get some advice on what I should keep and what I should replace. Right now I've got it running to a receiver and then to a 55in plasma tv. I like to play FPS and RPG games mostly, right now I'm in the middle of playing the Witcher 2 (getting like 20-30 FPS on High @1080p) and Skyrim. I didn't realize how low my fps was for the witcher til i ran FRAPS earlier, guess i should try lowering the settings and see if i can get it to run better, but I have to admit it looks pretty gorgeous when I'm not in combat.
i7 860 @ 2.8ghz
8GB GSkill ddr3 1333
EVGA GTX 460
Coolmaster Hyper Plus 212 Cooler
Corsair 90GB ssd (Boot Drive)
Inter 80GB ssd (Steam Drive)
3 Assorted HDDs
Corsair 650D Case
Corsair TX 650 PSU
Based on my research I think I can keep the drives, case, PSU, and possibly the ram. As for the upgrades I have narrowed it down to:
ASRock Extreme 6 Mobo http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157295
Sapphire 7950 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814202006
Corsaid H90 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835181036
How does this build look to you guys? Is there anything that I should replace as well, like the ram? Anything I'm replacing that I should keep? I hear the 7950 is an awesome bang for your buck card, im just a little gun shy of going the amd route since ive had nvidia for quite a while now. Any advice you guys can give me is greatly appreciated!
