I suppose so, I'm not getting any income any time soon so I don't know when I'll be able to upgrade yet :/

Nice upgrade, you'll enjoy it.

I went from a socket 939 (think circa 2004) motherboard with an x2 4200+ at stock speeds, 2gb DDR400 (yup, not even DDR2) and an AGP X1950pro 256mb to my current rig... It's really mind blowing and makes the wait worth it instead of minor updates.

Wow...

I've got a 939 socket board laying around here somewhere... I think it's an ASUS A8N-E. It's got a single core Athlon in it, don't remember what type. Yeah, definitely some old stuff lol

Very nice upgrade! If I may suggest one, you need a new psu if you want to change anything. There's a cooler master 620w for $60 after rebate and even a 720w for $70 after mir

Who are the OEMs of those PSUs? I've heard a lot of Coolermaster PSUs are subpar.

Yep, power supply was first on the list, because I need to change that to change anything else. I'm going to wait until I actually have money for the graphics card, may be a sale or something in the winter. The power supply I was looking at was this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256058

My current Cooler Master power supply is kind of a cruddy thing, but it's not bad in the sense that it ran the old rig 24/7 for 2 weeks and 6 days at 100% load. I just need more efficiency, modular-ness, and power.

Well, found out today that my friend is giving me his ASUS 660 DirectCU II when the nVidia 800 series releases, which is expected in Q1 of 2014 I heard.

Then I'd wait. Definitely a nice upgrade for you. I'd stick with just getting a PSU for now.

The only thing is the ASUS 660 cards aren't reference design, and there are no full cover blocks available ._.
