Hi all, been a while since Ive been around here, Ive been on some Australian OC sites and away at work alot so now its time to delve back into the hobby at home!
Currently still running the setup as in my User CP, but im looking to upgrade.
What has got me stuck is the money,
Im not sure whether to just buy a i7 980x chip and an ssd and maybe a new case to spruce the look up a bit. Or to just go all out with a new build and only re-use the VGA cards and CPU cooler? Ill throw a list of the parts im looking at for the new build, see what you guys think.
AsRock x79 Extrene6 Motherboard
Corsair Dominator GT CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 16gb (4X4 Kit)
Corsair HX 1050 80Plus gold PSU
Intel Core i7 3930k / 3820k ( would i really notice the difference compared to the price?)
OCZ Agility 3 240gb SSD
Fractal Design Desire XL Titanium Case
The above setup ranks in around the 1500 mark but doesnt include many other assets, name a cpu cooler being that my H70 wont mount in the "desired" case, excuse the pun, without drilling out the top, thus removing the sound deadening potential.
Also, I would like a fan controller, also interrupted by the case, where the front door would hit any knobs, so im left with touch screen LCD or internal controller....
My other option, to come somewhat close to later day performace is to buy an i7 980/990x and an SSD....
Basically im searching for approval other than the Mrs to spend more money here guys...Help me out!!!
Cheers, and Thanks in advance!
