Hey there, welcome to OCN!

Assuming everything in your sig rig was purchased at the same time, I might have held off on the CPU cooling, GPU, and monitor to get a faster CPU. That being said, you already noted that it fits your needs nicely! Glad you enjoy your rig . If you stay on these forums long enough, I guarantee your sig rig won't stay the same for long. hahaha.

This^^. Cuz why go LGA 775 with a Celeron cpu but have an HD 5830 for a video card? So first thought is slower GPU or faster CPU.

  1. Got a better processor like a Q6600
  2. Got a better board like the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
  3. Got a Corsair TX650 or Seasonic X650 PSU or equivalent in quality
