Going to be at a microcenter in two weeks

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
What would you buy/upgrade in my current system?
Within reason, I don't want a full system rework here.

I don't see anything wrong with your current rig.

Maybe pick up an SSD or a 2nd 6950?
Upgrade cooling?

I was thinking of upgrading the cooling. Do you know if microcenter has any watercooling equipment?
not an AIO thing.

I've actually never been to a Microcenter. Don't have one around me.
Nearest Fry's is a couple hours away. Lat time I was in the area, I think they only had one AIO water kit. I'd imagine Microcenter wouldn't have much more in that department.

But definitely look into a SSD.

I wouldn't commit to anything right now. As soon as i walk into Microcenter i just pick up one of their flyers and scan through it for sale items. I found a motherboard and power supply highly discounted that wasn't advertised anywhere else. Are you running the stock intel cooler?
