  1. Hello I need some advice on what the best way to upgrade my PC would be. A few days ago my Q9550 decided to kick the bucked and die, considering that its an old socket 775 I figured that the best solution is to just get a new CPU, MB, and RAM, rather than hunting for another 775 chip. My budget is about $1000 - $1500. As far as CPU, MB, and RAM is concerned I've narrowed it down to Intel Core i7 2600K, Gigabyte - GA-Z68XP-UD4 and G.Skill - F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL respectively. In addition to this I'm also thinking of getting a Noctua - NH-C14 for the CPU and a OCZ Technology - VTX3MI-25SAT3-120G for my primary Windows partition. The case, PSU, Sound card and Video card are getting carried over from my current PC. Now my question should I get 8GB of RAM or 16GB, Is the SSD worth it or should I invest In a better Video card instead ? My current Video card is a HD 4870x2. This PC will mostly be used for gaming and my UNI work I plan to OC it to some extent.
  2. Unfortunately the place where I'm buying doesn't have that brand of PSU "http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf" this lists all the parts they have for sale so out of the PSU's what would be recommended ?
  3. Ok I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to PC's and I would like to ask for some advice in regards to the one I'm having built for me. MB ASUS P5Q Deluxe $249 Processor Cooling NH-C12P CPU Cooler $89 CPU Q9550 $489 RAM G.Skill-PI 4GB Kit (2x2G) DDR2 1066 $125 HDD W.D. SATA 500G $85 Video 2GB 4870x2 ASUS $763 56K Modem Netcomm $14 Power Supply Coolermaster RealPower Pro 850w $261 Case Antec 1200 $239 DVD RW ASUS Retail SATA DL DVD-RW $33 All prices are in Australian Dollars. My budget is around $2400 ~ 2500 Purchasing from MSY. Also I'm thinking of OCing the CPU and RAM any advice on that would be appreciated.
