Guest Ret.Maj.Xander=US= Posted April 7, 2015 Share Posted April 7, 2015 I'm currently sitting on the original Core i7 920 which came out in 2009, along with a GTX 470 I got 3 or 4 years back. I'm not doing a full upgrade, but the main components are all getting replaced. CPU: Core i5 4590 3.3 - ~$200 CPU Cooler: Cooler Master 212 - $30 Mobo: MSI Z97 Gaming 5 - $145 RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw 2x4GB - $60 GPU: EVGA GTX 980 4GB ACX 2.0 - $553 New Parts Total: $988 Parts to re-use: Case : Cooler Master HAF SSD: Corsair Force 120GB HDDs: WD Green 2.5 TB, WD Green 2TB, Samsung 1TB PSU: Cooler Master 600W Things to note. - My oldest HDD is the Samsung which I got at the same time as my Core i7 in 2009 - I have a second SSD that I bought for my HTPC which I no longer use since Chromecast rocks my media center socks. I could maybe RAID the two 120GB drives? Although they are different brands... - The PSU was bought mid-2012. I have had 0 issues with it and I think it should be fine. But I'm also nervous because PSU lifespans are normally like 3-5 years. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
