Way back in 2008 when Intel announced the Core i7 processors and I finally bought my first computer form CyberPowerPC, It costed me 1100$ and originally had 2x Radeon 4650. Over a few years I did some upgrades but in January I installed an H100i and overclocked to 4021mhz. This processor is still amazingly fast and I plan to have it as long as possible while still upgrading around it.



After buying this computer I've put about 840$ into it and it stands about here



Current Build:
Corsair 500r White
Asus Rampage III Formula
Intel Core i7 920 @4.00ghz
Corsair H100i
XFX Radeon HD6950 2GB
2GBx3 Corsair XMS3 1333mhz Running @ XMP
Raid 0: 500GB WD Black x 500GB Hatatchi
TP-LINK Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter
Thermaltake Smart M Series 1200W power supply


My goal for this build will be to pretty much max out around the CPU without having it become a bottleneck. Firstly I was looking for a new video card, However am I slowing myself down by not using matching HDDS for Raid 0? If I got new ram to overclock would this help out a lot or a little? I am going to hold out until at least October to buy stuff so please advice on what to get would be helpful biggrin.gif
