Optimize my sig rig, before I call it done with. Advice?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be making a few changes to my sig rig over the next month, some parts are going to go into my gf's bday pc, and I'll get some slightly better pieces for mine.
Looking to max out what I can for performance and be done with it.

My XMS3 ram is going into her rig, and I'll be getting some G.SKill RipJaw 1600's(8gb).......My motherboard manufacturer states that it can OC ram to 1800 in the 3/4 slots, so is this something I should be thinking of attempting?

I'll probably give her my Hyper TX3 and get a 212+ for my rig...

I love my 460, but maaaaay, just maaaaay, upgrade to a 560ti??? Something within the 200$ range by the end of Nov...

Any ideas? I'm not going to change mb's or CPU, I'm stuck with these till I build a totally new rig.

Get an SSD.

Do you have temp problems on your cpu ? yes ? get 212+ . No? don't get it. Simple
I would recommand you get a 560ti 2gb Vers. though. Your lovely lady should be happy with a 460 unless she's a die hard gamer ( i doubt it ). Get this one. I know it's more then 200$ but it's worth the extra 1gb of vram it has.. Alternatively you can add another 460 to your system.

Get another GTX 460 1GB for SLI. I just bought another MSI Cyclone GTX 460 1GB from another member here for $110. It's my 2nd system with two GTX 460 1GB's in SLI, and it outperforms my overclocked GTX 580.

Just note, to have SLI on your 880GM-UD2H, you'd need to do an SLI hack (which isn't hard).
