    Default Upgrade on current system

    Hey guys, this is my first post here but i'm been watching some threads for a while now.

    My specs are listed on my profile and i want to had some new ones, like an SSD and some more RAM.
    I know my motherboard only supports up to 1066Mhz DDR2 so i think i will get GSKILL KIT 4GB DDR2 1066MHZ PK (CL5) and as for SSD
    CORSAIR SSD 120GB FORCE GT SATA III
    Oh, and i want to spend at maximum 250$

    I use my computer to gaming and i pretend to stream once i get a better internet connection.
    I play league of legends, DiRT, Diablo III, SC2, WoW, GW2...
    The problem is that sometimes my pc just gets so slow... And tbh, i have little free HD...

    Waiting on your opinions,
    Thank you

    Welcome to PureOC. Glad you decided to make your first post.

    So after reading what you said I think these 2 items below would be solid upgrade options for you.

    Ocz Vertex 4 128GB SataIII SSD $118 on Newegg. Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    G.Skill Ripjaws 4x4gb 16gb kit. 1066mhz $84 on Newegg. Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4G 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7Q-16GBRL

    Total $202.

    That is 4 times the memory you originally stated above, this should help out with your system slowing down. A solid fast SSD from OCZ and money left in your pocket.

    If you can get the extra cash, I would look into upgrading your video card. When was the last time you defraged your current hard drive ?

    First off, thank you for the support.

    As for the mems my motherboard only supports up to DDR2@1066Mhz, so i was thinking that maybe i could buy a new motherboard and I3/I5/I7 but it would be much more expensive than i thought... What do you guys think?
    And about the SSD, i dont really know what to choose but i think i'll go for the OCZ

    I would recommend doing a new build soon but for now my recommendations are:

    Two of these: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2G 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK

    And this: Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    And btw your mobo does support 1200 MHz ram, however I couldn't find any...

    I'd say a solid 500, prolly close to 800, with your new purchases prolly closer to 900 or 1k on a good day. It's got a nice CPU under the hood.

    Also if you plan on selling the system with the SSD you can get this and save 20 bucks http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226152

    No it supports 1200 also but you posted DDR3 1066

    Yeah the memory you posted was DD3. Finding 16GB of DD2@1066 for that price would be a steal!

    Also if you plan on selling the system with the SSD you can get this and save 20 bucks Newegg.com - Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)



    No it supports 1200
    Yeah 1200 is not widely available, i was able to find some but the prices were so ridiculous!

    I don't think you can get something awesome for $500 unless you know someone selling stuff at a discount.
