    Default Upgrading costs??

    How much are you planning on spending on upgrades for your pc this year?

    Ive already spent R8000 and im probably gonna end up spending another R13 000 on building myself a new Rig.


    Give a breakdown of what your upgrading to and the costs involved.
    This should be interresting

    Asus X58 Chipset Board
    Intel Core™ i7 920
    3x 2GB DDR3-1800
    500Gig
    Coolermaster Cosmos S Case
    Coolermaster Ultimate Power 700 Watt
    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion

    All in all around R15k, but it should be lower since I'm only buying at the end of the year.

    Might upgrade the gfx again which will mean between R3000-R4000, already upgrade the cpu for R2200. I am planning a major upgrade next year so I won't be doing much more this year. Planning to spend about R10 000-R12000 next year in upgrading the mobo,ram,psu,h/d,os and will probably need to replace the cpu and gfx again.

    What Graphics card are you getting? Price?
    What Cpu did you get for R2200?

    Nothing at the moment. Will look at the gfx scene in August/September then decide.

    I upgrade from an e6400 to my e8500 in early January.

    Yeah I have about the same. No need to get any soundcard when the onboard is of such a quality.

    I'm thinking of waiting till next year as well. Not in a rush to upgrade just yet. My 8800GTX Ultra is still serving me well.

    Might get a new HDD tho, current one is giving me crap.

    I've spent R2000 on the lighting for my games room. Going to spend about another R1000 on it though :-/
