Quite a while ago i utilized these forums to build my rig. I followed your advice and am very satisfied. Thank you so much! The reason I am back is that I am feeling the itch again, i've got some extra cash, and was thinking "I wonder what i could upgrade".
My system is as follows:
Case: Antec 900
Mobo: EVGA NForce 780i SLI
GPU: XFX 8800GTS 512MB (X2 in SLi)
RAM: G Skill 2GBx2 DDR2-800 PC2-6400
CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 500GB SATA
PSU: Silverstone 800W Modular
DVD: Pioneer 18x DVD+-R Burner Sata model
NIC: Intel 10/100/1000 mbps PCI PRO/1000GT
MISC: Tuniq Tower 120 p4 & k8 CPU cooler
DISPLAY: Samsung Syncmaster 226bw 22" LCD
OS: Windows Vista 32 bit
I have plans to purchase another monitor to run a dual setup. I also want to purchase a 5.1 system to run off my mobos' onboard sound which is supposedly pretty good.
My question for you guys is this, If this was your system, and you could upgrade something, what would it be?
As far as usage goes, i play ALOT of games (WoW, COD4, Crysis, Spore), i do ALOT of video/photo editing (sony vegas, adobe after effects, photoshop), watch alot of videos (HD podcasts), im pretty much into everything lol.
One concern i have is that im pretty much out of room inside my case, the 2 vid cards eat up alot of space, i sandwiched the NIC card in between them and now things are a bit crowded. So i need to keep that in mind when considering upgrades.
Performance now is good. My only problems are software related as far as i know lol.
Anyways, thanks for your time, try to have fun with this question, i don't want to be a pain.
