Upgrading My System

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, I've been meaning to upgrade some parts in my computer for a while now and wanted to know what the best replacements would be. I will be replacing the case, PSU, CPU heatsink and fan, mobo, and RAM

I have already picked out a case, and a heatsink and fan.

That leaves me needing a PSU, a 939 socket pci-e mobo, and new RAM. I'm wanting to overclock as much as possible on the CPU and RAM.

Thanks in advance for any help.

mid to high, if you could two or three options would be great.

Also, I want to add a second hard drive and set up a RAID0, but my hard drive was discontinued by newegg. Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150, I just need something that will match up pretty well with this.

Didn't need a new CPU, just the mobo, RAM, and PSU. i'm leaning towards the DFI mobo and Geil RAM. That PSU looks pretty awsome too. I think I may just get those three, unless anyone has other suggestions.
