Upgrading the rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi guys, today i just wanna a bit of help.
im thinking to upgrade my rig at the end of the year (im saving money so my budget can be 1600$)*
you can see my actual rig on my sig, im upgrading the mobo, psu, video card, processor, fan and ram.

my idea was for now:

8800gt to evga gtx 570 SC
core 2 duo e6550 to i7 2600k
thermaltake big typhoon vx to coolermaster v8
2x1 gb 800 mhz kingston to 2x4 gb 1600mhz hyperx kingston
asus maximus formula to MSI p67a-gd55
unknown psu (cant see from outside and im too busy to look at) to coolermaster xtremepower 700w

that was my actual plan, but it could change as the release of 600 series, and ivy bridge, the rest would be probably the same.

any suggestions?

Uhh! dont mean to be rude but if are planning the upgrade at the end of the year, there is no point in planning for it now. At least tats what I think. There are gonna be soooo many changes and upgrades and price drops that by the end of this year, our list will be obsolete. Better concentrate on the savings.
I am sure you will be the proud owner of a beast by the end of this year.

thanks for your comment, maybe you're right, but planning doesnt hurt at all does it?

i dont really think my actual psu could handle a 460 or a 560 right now, i dont know its Wattage (?) and my core 2 duo at 3.1 would bottleneck every game (i run at 1920x1080)
