What to Upgrade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well yea theres a thread like this everyday but...

I just got 90 bucks, might get like 120 if my rebates come in the next year -.-. What should i upgrade? Mind you i cant get anything from newegg.

I wanted to get a new graphics card, but im limited since my mobo is AGP and ill need more to get a mobo. However i can get the card now and mobo later.

Anyways ill stop talking, what do you guys think i should upgrade? (rig in sig)


thanks,

Just keep what you have and build a new rig after saving, but if you have to I would say a case and/or psu for future expansions.

I agree, your psu is quite small at the moment. I've just made the same upgrade. Bought a coolermaster real power 1000w and a coolermaster stacker 832. These a pretty high spec, but you don't need to go that big.

The Antec 900 case is going quite cheap these days as it's bigger brother the 1200 is out, and is a really good case by all accounts, you can pick up a decent psu with that.

I regret going for the base minimum when I build my last rig, and now I'm forking out cash again sadly.
