Older system performance boost

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I have an older system that I want to get a few more "ponies" out of. I am looking for suggestions that will help boost the performance but keep the cost low. IE, additional overclocking, solid state hard drive, etc.

Here is my setup:
E8400 Dual Core 3.0 OC'd to 3.85Ghz
Gigabyte 775 motherboard
8gb KingstonX 1066 ram
EVGA GTX460 1GB Superclocked
Corsair 450w PSU
WD Velociraptor 300GB
Asus Xonar DX

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

After a new GPU like the 560ti, an SSD will give you the biggest boost.

Thanks, I have been thinking I will upgrade the PSU to a 700w, buy a 560 TI and SSD..

Short of that I have heard of e8400 running over 4.0Ghz but mine can't seem to run stable over 3.85.
