Hi Im new here and this is my first post, im apologize for I done anything wrong. - -" This is the rig im using at the moment; CPU: Intel QX9650 CPU Cooler: none (Factory CPU fan+case fans) Motherboard: Asus Maximus Extreme Memory: 2x2GB G.Skill DDR3 1600(OC) Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD4870X2 Storage: 1x74GB WD' Raptor, 2x750GB Samsung Spinpoint Sound: On Board Network: Integrated Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Power: Thermaltake Tough Power 850W Optical: Ordinary DVD/CD Burner This rig hasnt been modded in any kind such as drilling or neon light because i prefer to keep it as simple as it is. And now i heard that Core i7 is really good and fast, if i upgrade to core i7, would it be worth it? This is what i have in mind; CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme 965 CPU Cooler: Cooler Master AquaGate Max Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58 Extreme Memory: 3x2GB Corsair DDR3 1600 Kit Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD4870X2 Storage: This one i have no idea what should i get. Sound: On Board Network: Integrated Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Power: Thermaltake Tough Power 850W Optical: Ordinary DVD/CD Burner I dont want SLI cuz i dont play game much. I need lots of storage and a fast one for Vista 64 Bit OS. (Raid 0??) I really dont need an uber sound card, on board will do. About liquid cooling, what do u guys think? I think my case still do the job, is it?? I think my psu still do the job, is it?? I dont need Bluray drive as i already have PS3 along with 7.1 Home Theater plus 55" Sony 200mhz LCD TV. Thx in advance for all the comment.
