I'm looking to upgrade parts of my PC and I'm looking for some advice and maybe some questions answered if possible.
There is no room in upgrading the CPU or MOBO, so I'm focusing on things that i can upgrade.
What I would like to accomplish is to play WoW, SW:TOR, BF3, and Skyrim while trying to keep it from being choppy. I liek tor un settings on high.
Intel core 2 Duo 2.4ghx oc to 2.63 on an ASUS P5N-E sli mobo with 2x 1GB Kingston DDR2 800MHz ram
GPU: GeForce GTX 260
Antec 900 Case
Win XP SP3
WD SATA 1TB HDD
Now I already plan to upgrade to Windows 7 which means a clean install so I would like advice on SSD's and will they improve gameplay or to just stick with the 1TB HDD and noticing while reading up on SSD's they use SATA 3 and they are also 2.5 and how would they fit in a 3.5 HDD cage that the Antec 900 has.
Specs on my MOBO says Supported max memory is 8GB of DDR2 800mhz ram I have dual channel architecture and there are four ram slots so i'm up for advice on Ram.
I'm pretty settled on the GeForce GTX 560 Ti for upgrading the GPU.
So I have priced currently win 7 at $100, 560ti at $270 and possible ram in the range of $50. wiggle room for the SSD if the boost in performance is worth it.
Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
