Hey guys, I am currently in the process of upgrading my approximately 6 year old desktop to something more up to date. I just wanted to hear your opinions and if I might be better upgrading particular things first once it is built or even opinions on overclocking. The specs for the old desktop are as follows:
AMD 2.1 Ghz dual core processor
3 GB DDR2 RAM
Very basic Asus Mother board
160 GB Western Digital HDD with Windows 7 64-bit on it
1 TB Western Digital HDD for data
For the new build I will be moving over the hard drives and optical drive while replacing everything else including the case, specs are as follows:
I am thinking I will upgrade the 160 GB drive to an SSD, add a 2nd GTX 760 for dual SLI, and add in/replace an optical drive to allow bluerays.
The purpose for this PC is for gaming, school work and normal browsing, skype, programming, and possibly live streaming games via twitch/youtube.
In addition I have a 1 TB external drive and a 3 TB external drive which will be connected and network mapped with my laptop and use with VPN.
I have 2-3 monitors..2-19 inch 3-17 inch which will be connected as well until I upgrade to 3-23 inch.
Also any suggestions for a new keyboard, mouse, and surround sound system would be great. I currently have a RAZER Tarantula keyboard and raptorgaming 4-5 button mouse and a logitech 5.1 surround sound system. I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks
