What to upgrade? / rate system.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so ive got some extra cash, and im thinking of getting a upgrade, or saving for an upgrade.

current system (sig rig)
biostar ta890fxe
amd 965 BE @ 4.0ghz @ 1.39v (50C at max load)
Noctua D-14 cooler
G.Skill ripjaw ram 1600mhz 4gb
EVGA gtx 470
Seasonic 620w 80+bronze modular psu
500gb WD 5400 rpm sata 3gb/s hdd

im thinking hdd wise, but ssd's are expensive to the amount of data they can hold and i dont have a lot of storage need as i dont download a lot of stuff other than games and im not even near 500gb atm.

so an upgrade beside an hdd, what should it be?

rate with a 1-10 for the rig parts

pick up a used 470 from the market place and SLI, or upgrade the cpu. but SSD should probably come first

I'd recommend an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD for your next upgrade. Its about the best bang for your buck upgrade within reason.
