UPGRADE UPGRADE UPGRADE Time

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all

Not been on for along time guys and it good to be back .

I am currently looking to upgrade my system I have in my System below. the 2700k i have had it past 4.5 Ghz. To be honest tho I only did that for the hell of it. Now a days it sits at stock happily. Roughly got £500 to spend. Not playing PC games any more (Well one in a blue moon i might).

Like to run VM's for testing stuff and Photography applications. The most part I would like to reuse stuff if I can. i.e the 16gb of ram ect lol.

Any any suggestions would be grateful thumb.gif

you could try to get a FX 8320 and a 970 UD3P mobo, unless you can find a decently priced X79 mobo and an i7 3930k or 4930k
