So its time for an upgrade! Its just that this has probably been the most confusing upgrade I've ever done. What I've got so far is:
- Intel i5 760 2.8 Ghz 8MB
Gigabyte GA-P55A UD4
Gigabyte Geforce GTX 460 OC 1GB
Corsair 2x2GB DDR3 2000MHz CL8 DOMINATOR GT @ 8-9-8-24
As for the timings on the DIMMs, I figured that going for a CL8 @ 2000mhz instead of CL7 (7-7-7-20) @ 1600mhz would even it out a bit. I'm also considering on adding another 4GB sometime next year, perhaps when Diablo III comes out and I go for SLI
I know that the performance difference between 2 16x slots and 2 8x slots aint that big, 8% it seemed over at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pci ... 696-9.html...
And I'm not quite sure if my Seasonic 430W is enough for the new PCU & GFX. It seems that its just underneath the minimum of what I need (Loosely calculated almost 490w).
That's it. So far.
Edited to add: If I do get a new PSU, its for being capable of SLI with 2x 460GTX. That pumps upp the watt usage quite a lot but a Seasonic X-750 should do the trick.
