What Should I Upgrade Next?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am seeking some advice as to what I should upgrade in my main build.

First, I have a Samsung 2x4GB kit on the way, so that deals with the only 4GB of memory at the moment.

I just recently picked up an SSD about a month ago, and now I am wondering what I should upgrade next, I've got a little bit of money laying around.

Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks,

Get yourself a better cooler and push your 2500K as far as your chip can handle! thumb.gif

This is the kit I have ordered - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147096

And I'll probably buy another one here pretty soon so I have 16GB.


What cooler would you recommend? I know the Megahalems used to be the best you could buy, but that was a while ago.

I think the Scythe Mugen 3 is now one of the best coolers
