Might wanna get better RAM perhaps, lower the graphics card a bit, get a lower wattage, lower priced but well known PSU, Seasonic perhaps, or Antec (ignore the other thread, it lies!!) - Get 2 x 1gb Dual Channel OCZ stuff :D

Well I'm happy with my RAM ATM. I can't really see that I'll get that much of a performance increase from my current RAM to some special stuff.

Plus I don't wanna spend TOO much on it.

I choose the GFX card for future-proofness and the PSU is a good one anyway. If I'm getting a full system upgrade, I might as well go the full way.


As a side note, which is better?

MSI RD480 or Asus A8R-MVP

The MSI has gigabit LAN where as the ASUS does not. What other major differences would their be between the two?
