Possible upgrades?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a homebuilt system with the components listed below. I would like to know if there are any possible upgrades that would boost performance. It been over a year and its time to upgrade something.

Asus P9x79 LE
Intel i7-3820 (over clocked @ 4.5 GHz)
G.Skill Ripjaws Z series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 2133
PNY Quadro 600 1GB Video Card
Corsair CX600M 600W power supply
XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240 Water cooling Kit.
Plextor PX-128M5P as the Main Hard drive
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

I wasn’t sure if I would gain very much if I went to am i7-4930K. The MB will take it but I really don’t know if its worth the money for what I would get in return.

Any ideas appreciated.

I would get a better PSU. That system deserves better than CX junk. 4930K upgrade depends on whether time worth you more than $600 (or whatever they charge for 4930 these days). Maybe a better Quadro card too.

What PSU do you recommend? What wattage?

I was already looking at a better quadro card and upgrading the processor.

Thanks for your response.
