What do you think of my rig?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there, i would like to know what you think of my rig.

Specs:
-Intel Q6600 oc"d to 3.2gHz
-Gigabyte GA-EG45m
-Antec One Hundred w/ window
-XFX pro650w XXX edition Modular
-EVGA Gtx 660 SC 2gb
-OCZ Platinum 8gb DDR2
-Zalman Soccet 775 air cooling
-Game at 1920 x 1080 resolution
-Cooler master case fans

Yes the computer is quite outdated in terms of CPU and motherboard but i am looking to upgrade sometime in the near future to either a 2500k or a 3470 and an sli motherboard with ddr3 1600mhz ram.For a long term update i am going to buy another 660 and sli them when I've got a motherboard with multiple pce-e ports. Just so you know i'm only 15 so these upgrades might take some time when i get more cash.

Another thing i'd like to point out is the the case came with a 140mm fan that was mounted at the top but unfortunately it crashes into the cpu fan (see pictures). I will be installing this back into the case when i've got a different cpu cooler.

Please go and take a look at my pictures of the pc and i've also go a screenshot of my 3d Mark score and windows rating.
Also, let me know what kind of improvement i will get when i upgrade to something like the 2500k or 3470.

Comment on what you think of my rig and tell me any suggestions you might have. Thanks!

I'd start off by saying you should probably consider spending some time dealing with cable management, I am not too familiar with the case, but I would think there is at least a little you could do with some of those cables. Perhaps doing so will get you space between your case fan and cpu cooling fan.

Without a lot of income you need to consider upgrades based on what you are feeling with your current setup. Do you feel you are being bottle-necked somewhere?

I am sure you will quite enjoy an upgrade to a 2500k or 3470, your 660 is pretty solid though and I would personally spend the money elsewhere for now upgrading ram, processor, cpu fan, etc.

Do you think it's worth paying the extra money for the 3470 or is it better to buy a 2500k but have the ability to overclock it?
