    Also, what about the dreaded jump to FX-6300 or similar to save money? They are looking more competitive now though not as efficient.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, the Asus P5Q mobo has DDR2 memory, so I won't be reusing that. Any recommendations for motherboards? My thoughts are that I won't really have much need for overclocking...

    I have them too and they are wonderful. They will cost more than your budget, but only slightly. Good speakers for audiophiles who don't want 15.1 surround sound :) Excellent build and size.

    Your present PC is obviously fine, unless you have cash to burn or offload, and you can find a new home for your current build. Why not wait another two years? I am only upgrading my 2009 PC now with...

    Aye, this is likely to be where Win 9 is going and where Win 8 was expected to deliver. However, 8.1 is far more consumer oriented than 7. For example the language used to notify users is highly...

    True, only that the game is an official (re)remake of an existing game owned by the same company. Ideally, they should customise the PC version further so that it has ticks all the 1.6 boxes AND adds...
