Rig update (mobo,ram,hdd,cpu-cooler)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello OCers,

my friend wants to upgrade the Mobo and Ram of his rig for 400€ and I suggested buying an ssd with the leftovers.

CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 2,50GHz
Stock Cooling
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 (Cyclon)
HDD: WD6400AAKS-07A7B0
Tower: AeroCool Syclone
Mobo and Ram unknown (even Everest doesn't help), some old DDR2 stuff

The system gets used for gaming only.

Here are the things I had in mind, but I'd appreciate every feedback.
Corsair XMS3 DIMM Kit 8GB PC3-10667U CL9-9-9-24 (DDR3-1333)
€ 84.90
ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP@n
€ 170

I had a really hard time finding a 775 motherboard with DDR3 support over 1066.
This would leave 150€ for a ssd, witch one I'll choose when I know how much money is left.

Are those choices good or is anyone able to make a better suggestion?
Thank you very much.

If you're upgrading the mobo anyway, why not get a better socket? That would be a wiser choice than skimping there just to make room for the SSD.

Excellent point...
Thank you, I just didn't think about that at all.
