So I thought I would like to build a totally new system, with new everything, but it appears that still runs me about Â£1000. Which is really more than I can justify given how few new games I currently play.
I picked out an Ivy Bridge with a GTX570 maybe this was overkill.
I usually like to go for one off the top at the time I buy so that my system will last a bit. What would people recommend as a worth while upgrade from the following:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3.4Ghz cooled by Themalright U120 Black
2x 2GB PC8500 DDR2 Corsair Dominator
2x Sapphire HD5850 1GB
OCZ Vertex 3 240GB
ASUS Xonar D2
Although the case I have is fine, I really do think its time to replace it. For the case I would love to go with a Corsair Obsidian 800D or 650D. (I know I know this siphons valuable funds away from core components!)
I generally buy my hardware from: Scan or Overclockers UK
Thanks for reading!
