Hey all I have about 50 to spend on pc upgrades (current specs on account) and was wondering if it would be best to,

-Add an extra 8GB of Ram
-Get a Corsair CWCH60

or anything else you would recommend

Bank it and once you have more cash invest in a SSD - that will really add a boost to your system.

Grab the RAM unless you're dissatisfied with your current cooling solution/achievable overclocks...(4.5 GHz is standard for most 2500Ks)

If you've got about 100-150 more quid to spend, consider upgrading your graphics card. (It's still a very respectable card for its age though.)

Or do what Golden says, and splurge on a new SSD when you've saved enough quid. Most forumites agree that the SSD is the best upgrade you could add to your system if you have the quid for it.
