  1. Its just a gaming PC. Just been bitten by the upgrade bug lately. Interested in upgrading what I can as long as its worth it. I know from what has been said that my Pc is looking ok, GPU seems to be the logical next move. Thanks for all the help btw.
  2. You mentioned that with out a new motherboard I could not upgrade anything else. Can you expand on this please. What exactly is my motherboard limiting me from doing?
  3. Ok thanks, Will look are new GPUS and RAM. Not sure if another 16gb will be noticeable. Dosnt it bottleneck at some point.
