Doing an upgrade.

Recommended Posts

Hi all..

 

Looking for some advice.

 

I've got $600 to spend to upgrade my comp. My current system has an AM2 5200+ and Abit motherboard, 9600GT and 2gig of ram.

I am going to retain the 9600GT as it's perfectly suitable to my needs (only the odd bit of gaming on a 21" screen) and i already have 2 hard drives which give me plenty of space. So im just thinking of upgrading the motherboard, cpu and ram. any suggestions?

 

ta.

PM.

 

edit: was also thinking of changing to the intel i5 or i7 platform if the cost can be justified by performance increase.

i5 for that system yes.

 

Windows 7 is a nice upgrade idea, considering a major hardware upgrade needs a format.

 

the 9600GT can be overclocked too :D

Out of curiosity, which i5 would be better? The 750 with 8MB cache @2.66ghz ($223) or the 660/661 with 4MB at 3.33ghz ($275/$229)?
