Woke up this morning and my computer could not switch on:(. Spent a good solid 3 hours swapping parts with my wife's computer. Only to find that 1 ram module is not usable and one of the Graphic cards not usable. And one of the rails of my power supply not working. Did a swap with my wife's Graphics card and found that it was a lot faster then mine.
So now she has my older Graphics card(Asus GeForce 8800 GTX Ultra) and My com is running on 2 gigs of ram for the moment. Surprising that the games take longer to load but the runs alot more smoother. BTW my wife's com had a ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II that I just bought 2 months ago.
Now planning to to an upgrade for the Motherboard and ram and CPU and cooling along with Power supply and Tower casing to house the 2, 3 Tb HDDs that I bought but cannot use with my current Mobo. I plan to include a 256Gb SDD, but my budget is only 1500 AUD. For me cooling is essential because I prefer to buy Midrange and invest on cooling so that the rig last longer even when OCed. Unfortunately will have to invest in a full install of Windows 7 just to make the HDD's fully utilized.
P.S. Anyone wanna buy a Q6600 CPU with 6 inch high cooling with twin fan with Mobo and 2 Gigs of ram with Power supply for 200USD? Just Kidding
