What should I upgrade in my system!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What should I upgrade in my system? I am RMAing my GPU, a new one will come, so I am not going to upgrade that. I was thinking either a new pump cause, my pumped died, and I am using a stock fan atm... either that or a C300 SSD, Ram etc... what do you guys think I should upgrade. I have about a $250 Budget.

the 4890s scaled really well...you can easily get another for less than 250$ and that would be a great performance boost. the only reason you'd want a SSD is if loading times are killing you.

250 is more than enough to get you a nice 24" 1920x1080 monitor.

4890, or an SSD.

you could do both if you opted for a Mushkin Callisto 40GB, and got a 4890 used off the FS section here

Well, if your pump died, might as well replace that.

Otherwise, I'd say a 4890 if you're looking for more graphics performance or an SSD if you're looking for stuff loading faster. Personally, I'd go SSD first, then see if I could swing another (used) card.

I think you might wanna get a new pump first > SSD > GPU
