Upgrade dilemma. Could use some help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My rig is in my sig. I could really use some advice.

I am not happy with my mobo, case, PSU and cooling.

I am looking to get a HAF case (which one yet i am unsure) and a performance moboard (crosshair V). I wish I had taken extra care in choosing my componants when I first ordered my comp from Cyberpower PC.

My mobo and psu especially are junk. I am not looking at spending a whole lot if I can help it but dont mind stretching if it is a good buy. like a good case for example which i wont change for a long time.

Also i really was thinking of switching to intel but not sure if its going to be a little out of my league.

At the moment i am leaning toward crosshair V and keeping my 1090t then perhaps upgrading to bulldozer at a later date. I have a gtz 470 which i could put in sli eventually if I had a decent mobo.

What would you guys recommend for me. Any info is helpful and appreciated. Thanks.

psu: modular gold rated seasonic power supply at 750W

case: I like the antec 1200 and I believe the new version has the cpu back plate cut, but coolermaster HAF 932 is awesome as well, as are a bunch of other brands, really depends what kind of cooling you want to do (water, air, etc.)

mobo : I'm not 100% about amd motherboards because I'm buying an intel soon

cooling: I love the noctua nh-u12p and nh-d14 for air cooling.
