Suggestions for what to upgrade next

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've got my computer to where I'm very happy with it, but I'm always looking for more (aren't we all lol). I love to play multiplayer FPS games online (BBC2)and was wondering what you guys think would be a good cost effective next upgrade. Thanks for any and all suggestions in advance.

Makes me happy!

If that's your sigrig, there's not really any one single thing to be upgraded. You've done very well with what you have.

Perhaps move into a new case so you've got space for possible future upgrades, and for cable management.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about a new case. I like the InWin Dragon Slayer as I want to stay with the mATX form factor and it has excellent cable management too.
Makes me happy!

Definitely. Once you've got good cable management, you won't be able to look at a jumbled mess of a computer's innards again. Even though it's just cosmetic, it's so very pleasing to have everything organized.

if you still want an upgrade on that machine go for a SSD for a boot disk

personally i would go with a new case first, you hava a nice machine that doesnt realy need any upgrades.

other things to think about would be a sound card or possiblt a hybrid drive for your system (mid point to going SSD)
