What to upgrade next?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So it's come to that point where new stuff is out and money is burning a hole in my pocket... so I'm wondering what you guys would look at upgrading next in my system!

Some of my thoughts...
The mobo could be better, but would upgrading it require me to buy a new Windows license?

Cooling... the case is great for cooling, the cpu has even dropped to around 15 celsius at times. The GPU however averages around 75 celsius while gaming.

I know it's a crossfire board, I had ATI until recently upgrading to my 560 Ti.

I will be attempting OC'ing soon once I get some time to learn it!

Idle my cpu sits around 25C, load 35C.

Used mainly for gaming, would like to upgrade to dual-monitors in the near future, maybe even 3.

Add another 4gb of g.skill in your rig. Your motherboard is just fine.

Would it be worth upgrading considering I've rarely seen ram usage go over 70%? Also it's a huge pain to install ram cause my cooler goes overtop of 2 slots haha...
