Current Setup is below:
Ram: g.Skill Ripjaws 8gb
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2
Motherboard: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3
Power: 600W OCZ
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 460
I thought a good place to start would be with my motherboard since this is really the heart of a PC, among other things obviously. Basically I would like a solid "upgrade" of sorts, although I don't exactly know what I'm looking for and that is where you guys come in. Quick example, I've began to OC my CPU and some people warned me that my "VRMs" aren't cooled in my motherboard...so I should look into getting a new mobo. Obviously I would like to stay with AMD, but I don't even know what to look for in terms of "what to look for when purchasing a good mobo." Like if I were to purchase RAM I would personally look for 1600 DDR3...but when it comes to mobo I have no idea.
And yes, I would like to be able to do some over clocking
Quick side note: Would also like you to weigh in on the benefits of an SSD. Would it be the best use of an SSD to place my OS on it in order to have my computer boot up from the SSD thus increasing boot times? Thanks guys
I am open to all suggestions, and I thank you in advance!
