Your thoughts on this system

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Couldnt really decide where to open the thread, chose this one.

I will upgrade my system from the one in my sig, to this one.
The upgrade will cost me about 460$ (dont complain about the price, its expensive here!)

Old one : in sig

New upgrade :

Intel Core i5 2300 (2.8ghz 6 mb cache)
Gigabyte GA-PA65-UD3-B3 Motherboard
Kingston DDR3 2x2 GB RAMs

Any thoughts on this? Im trying to keep the price as low as possible.

If you are going to buy a non overclockable cpu aren't you cheaper of with a h67 chipset motherboard?

IMO, with how well SB overclocks, you'd be better to save up and just get a 2500k. If price is a factor then just get a Phenom 1055T or similar AMD chip. A Phenom 6-core decently clocked should be better in the long run than a stock Intel Quad-core.
