Upgrades from Santa

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This started out as a budget gaming pc in august. It had 1 gb of ram, old 200gb pata hdd, geforce 6200, pentium dual core e5400 stock speeds, 500w psu, msi mobo and a cheep case. I got it to 3.5 GHz on stock fan Well the whole budget part kinda went out the window. I bought a evga gts 450 and a 630w psu (wires broke on the cheep 500w). santa aka my family got me:
Logitech G15 and MX 518
1.5 TB HDD
Corsair H70
Samsung Blu ray drive
coolermaster Haf 922(Coming Today!)
Cables on the way
Right now i have it assembled out of case because i wanted to use the h70 and it wouldnt fit in my current case. Im using a xbox 360 sata cable because i wanted to use my new hdd and my family forgot to get me cable, no big deal they will be here jan 3. HAF 922 is coming in a couple of hours. On a side note the h70 is epic. Im at 4 GHz and my max temp is 50c. ( I have the resistors in that lower fan speed witch makes this even more epic)

here is a pic (yes i know my pc area is a mess)

Lol... sorry, guess I wasn't clear... I mean that its just the mobo and CPU to upgrade before you no longer have the same computer at all! Some way off though maybe?

Nah. The GPU should be okay for a little while yet... Particularly since it is a budget build... or was...
