Choose my next upgrade

post #1 of 8

Hey guys I will have my pay this thursday and I'm confused on wath to buy .

will have +/- 350$ and if you see my sig rig I have not so much choice of changing and buying things but It's some serious things to look at

The PSU is not subject to upgrade cause it's going RMA and refund to buy another one more quality this piece of crap make so much noise it overcome the sound of my ATI fan at 50% speed . Stupid garbage capacitor ...

see sig rig and decide what to upgrade or add to the system that will be the best choice

The most suggested upgrade will be my choice to purchase

keep in mind I will buy in store and not newegg so it will cost a little bit more than newegg .

I really would love a 1055t + Air cooler but worried if a big air cooler will fit on UD7 with silent pipe on North bridge

A new CPU and a good cooler. With $350, that means that you probably won't get a decent cooler if you went with a 1090T. I would suggest either a 1055T or a 955 C3 and either an H50 or a Venomous X.

Actually, if you do get the 1090T, I think you can get a Scythe Yasya. Might be a little over, though...

EDIT: Just saw your post. Go with the H50, then.

I use my PC to

Folding

Use it as a playground after work experimenting things and just looking at it while it folds (switching things from place to place . the reason I'm addicted to running caseless )

playing games

Also it's a big competition with me and myself to see how fast I can learn the computer environment . School here don't really teach anything about computer and I didn't finished school ( poor me but it's a whole other story cause I'm not the guy motivated by papers and teachers I love competitions and it's the thing that pushes me to get better) I'm now spending more time reading OCN and tech related article then I ever spent time on anything else ( even World of Wacraft ). so I'm teaching myself always trying to know more things about hardware then the previous person that helped me to get better.

And as I see the 1055t+cooler is the most recommended thing to get . now I just have to grab a friend camera and take pics of the rig when it will be settled .

Edit : reason doing threads like these are for budgeting purpose . hehe have 3000$ more to put in this thing before november but you know it's difficult to choose where to start when you want too much things
