EDIT: okay had to add this in so ppl stop ASSUMING, this system is nearly (or more than) 5 years old, but the case is 8 years old!! the PSU was a gift from an Inlaw 2 years ago, cause the cheap ass 400W psu i had died!, and my original GPU died (it was a 550Ti, where i live gets really hot, and i leave it running 24/7 cause friends and family contact via Skype, so the GPU fan died), and as for Graphics card upgrade!, since i don't/refuse to play alot of FPS games, i don't really need a super B.A. GPU
1st of all, couldn't find the cheap case i use
As for use, just a gaming rig, LOL, SWTOR, D3, WOW, TES3:Morrowiond (MGSO modded), X3: Albion Prelude.
Will eventually do the upgrade list i have on here so i can more easily record/stream some of my games! but this old dual core struggles, major bottleneck, not bad for nearly 4 years old!
a few reasons for the upgrades im looking at, 1: CPU, come on need i say more, need more coresssss 2: The cooler, reason im going for that Zalman unit is that the NB on my mobo runs super hot under load, about 70c, i know its normal for them, but rather some sort of cooling 3: The Case, my case is soo old and dated, its from like 6+ years ago, no top vents, still has funnel style vent pipe from the side, only like 3 hdd bays, no cable management area! 4: the HDD, couldn't find my HDD on there so i used to next closest, my HDD is actually a SATAII
