Help decided on my upgrades !

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have around 500-700 bucks, I don't quite know yet ( waiting on the check). I want to do some upgrading with it, and I would like to know if I chose some decent components, and get people's opinion on them. I've been out of the loop for the best dang for your buck items sense my last build.

As always, thank you for any and all input !

keeping the case, monitor,OS, and video card as those are the goody's, I cant afford and don't really need to upgrade yet. These are the things I've chosen to buy.

You need a dual channel memory kit, not a tri channel.

The motherboard is only 4+1 (I believe) and the vrms are not heatsinked. Look for something like the P8P67, I know it's a bit out of your budget but you're not going to be able to overclock safely on the C43.

You should really slow down and start over. You're spending all your money and not getting a very good return.

Drop the locked cpu and buy the 2500k on sale for $190 or below
Buy an Open Box motherboard or find one under $100 on sale or used
Keep your current power supply
Buy a Hyper 212+ for $25
