My system crapped out today ( http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...-issue-my.html
) and I'm going to be troubleshooting it.
I would like to salvage as much as possible, with the exception of the motherboard and PSU - I will be upgrading those for sure.
So, here's the list of what I have and what I want to upgrade to. Please critique!
Gigabyte P35-DS3L -> ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI
- $134.99 + $8 Shipping
I want SLI capabilities, even if I stick with a single card solution. Leaves room for the potential to upgrade in the future.
Don't need a crazy OC board either, although I'll miss the OC power of the P35.
Corsair HX520 -> CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX
- $125 w/ Promo, $100 w/ MIR, Free Shipping
I love Corsair, and I want SLi capability with head room.
8800 Ultra -> 2x 8800 Ultra (Used, $125-150 likely) or 1x GTX 260 216sp if my Ultra is busted (Will wait for a deal)
WD HD 1TB, $105, free shipping (Fairly sure I'm going to need this)
4GB 1066 RAM - not sure what kind?
I am not opposed to going Crossfire, and have been seriously considering it, since ATi are very well priced right now - I am just always hearing about issues with their drivers, so I'm a little wary.
