Your computer will be outdated before you know it with the speed technology is moving at, so your car will still be cool 10-15 years from now =]

As for GPU's, I'm somewhat partial to Nvidia.. Maybe I just like the green?
Mobo never really matters to me much, so long as it's quality and works.

With regards to my car, I'm waiting on some of the higher models to upgrade their exhaust, CAI has already been taken care of too. I'd be going for a new grill, another set of 18"s powdercoated black, some custom LED work in the lights, lots of interior touches.. for the most part on the cheap but hot damn is car stuff ever expensive.
I recommended u hd6950 2gb for the gpu cuz its now the best bang for the buck,u can unlock it to a hd6970,
since u like nvidia,for your budget a gtx560ti would be perfect,but a unlocked hd6950 (hd6970) would be a better option for the same price,
hd6950 is faster than gtx560ti & if u unlock it to hd6970 it will be even faster than gtx570,so hd6950 2gb is your best option,gtx560ti is the second choice,
hope this helps u

Well, the difference between a cheap mobo and a good mobo is only about $30, I don't mind that.

I simply don't need a $200+ ROG board built for high overclocks and triple SLI

do you have an RT or v6?

wheels+tires will probably cost more than a new PC
you could probably get a cat-back for 5-7 hundred

I thought hemis were supposed to be more fuel efficient? I guess more efficient than a normal v8...

My friend has a Charger SXT, I'm assuming it uses the same engine as yours. Great cars.

You came to a computer site 99% 80% of the people are going to say the computer... Me i say maybe a boot SSD or better quality ram (IMO), if you get along fine with that (more than enough for Photoshop and lower games).

more efficient than the old Magnum V8's.....

yeah same engine, 3.5 is a good one.


and you might as well do the computer thing as an exhaust system would take all of that 800 haha and I don't think there are any good headlight upgrades or anything. you could get a programmer of some sort though i guess, idk how much those cost for your car

Hemis have a feature that when they aren't using all eight cylinders, they shut half of 'em down. It's nice if you drive responsibly..
But that's another story
