paulpp,

Consider this upgrade, I went with the same and I'm very happy with speed and looks !

paulpp,

Regarding the PSU, don't forget this is a key component and not to be skimped on. Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, Thermaltake are solid choices. I recently purchased the 600watt version of the Seasonic and was blown away at it's quality.
