So i finally upgraded from my trusty old 939 computer.
Going from

CPU: AMD 3800+ x2 to Intel E8500
CPU COOLING: Thermaltake R1 to Thermalright Venomous X
MOBO: a8n5x to Asus P5QL/EPU
RAM: 4gb ddr 400 to 6gb ddr 2 1066
HDD: 300 gb sata click of dead hdd to 750gb sata + 160gb ide
GRAPHICS: 256mb 7600GS to 1gb ATI HD4850
CASE: apevia x-cruiser to Coolermaster Elite 310

So thats it so far, pretty cheap build, sold the old stuff to pay for most of the new stuff. I think im going to upgrade to a mobo that supports crossfire when i can, also going to get a ssd and maybe a 750w psu. Anything else you thing i should get? Also looking at some dvd bay fan's to help direct airflow into cpu.
