Hey guys im i have been looking around here for a while to decide what would be the best upgrade path for me.
I currently own a E6850 on a gigabyte UD2 P35 board which i OCed to 3,6ghz and 2GB 800mhz of ram.
With a XFX GTX285 graphicscard and a 550W antec neo-V PSU and mugen3 cooler
My cpu and ram have become to much of a bottleneck so i want to upgrade those first, i dont have a very big budget available for the time being so i try to make the best of it.
I use my system mostly for browsing the internet some more intensive games like empire totalwar battlefield3 farcry3, paradox and 1080P video coding for my ps3
Im considering these parts:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
Ram: i still have a kingston 2x2GB 1333mhz ddr3 kit around here. i could upgrade those to a G.skill 2x8GB, DDR3, PC14900, CL10, XMP, RipjawsX or Kingston 2x8GB, DDR3, PC19200, CL11, Beast, XMP later on. i dont know what memory i should choose what do you guys think is best?
Case: a aforrdable case K350 from coolermaster seems nice (my current case is so terrible that it dousnt cool well enough for the gpu so i have to take the side pannel of
And a cheap sata dvd drive so i can install windows 7 ofcourse
for later upgrades im considering a faster gpu radeon HD 7850 or better, ssd, a stonger psu and maybe a cpu watercooler H80.
I would like to know your opinions on this and just how far i could expact overclock on these parts (would be nice if i could get 5ghz out of the FX8350:D) or if its better to choose something else.
Thank you very much in advance
