    Need some help upgrading!

    My story's a weird one, but i'll keep it short. I know little in the Build-my-own-rig thing.
    Right now, i feel like my comp's quite unbalanced. I'd like some advice for leveling everything.


    Specs :

    GPU : Sapphire HD 7950 3 GB GDDR5

    Processor : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz (4CPUs) ~3.1GHz

    RAM : 2 X 2GB Module - DDR3 1333MHz Kingston ValueRAM

    Motherboard : Intel Corporation DH67GD AAG10206-206

    Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

    I believe i need a serious upgrade in my memory. Any possible advice on that?
    I'm fine with graphics by what i can see.
    Processor i'm unsure of... Motherboard too!

    I might get some SSDs to run my games. Any good ones out there?


    Thanks for any advice!

    ok so i set up some new stuff for you here http://************.com/p/1LJdb

    here is break down of what and why...

    CPU: that i5 is slightly outdated. you can still get a good Intel cpu without upgrading to i7 so i chose the 4670k ... great for gaming. i assume thats what you fancy.

    RAM: you just need 8 gigs for your setup period. its doesn't really matter what brand but i'm a fan of kingston. i threw in 1600 mhz 8 gigs dual channel.

    MOBO: intel corporation...lol. the one i threw in should do the trick. pretty decently priced and very featured.

    ~ your storage unit is fine and SSD's are really just extra cash..

    Definitely get at least 8GB of 1600 MHz RAM.
    A CPU upgrade is optional, but highly recommended.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Thanks @3kc @Aborted for the information! I'll be sure to swing to the gaming shop near me and get those upgrades!
    (Yes, such stores exists!)
