Ok first off let me say this, my computer is a VERY big part of my life, I use it for everything from paying my bills to doing my daily job as a network administrator to playing the games I love and enjoy daily. If you look in my signature and click on the system specs you can see what I am currently running. However I am in a dead spot currently because of this http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ne-decode.html
Now I usually upgrade/rebuild every other year and it's my turn to do so now. But what I am curious to get opinions on is what should I change. My current video card is less than 6months old, its warrantied for life through BFG. RAM is the same, lifetime warranty through OCZ. Motherboard is less than 1 year old, RMA'able through Asus. The CPU I bought the longest time ago, not sure on exact date, that was purchased from Frys.com. My PSU is 11months old, bought from newegg. I really don't think my keyboard/mouse/optical drives or my brand new dual Samsung 2333SW monitors are causing my issue.
So I was specing out a new build and new components for that build, and wanted to get some opinions on what I should replace, should keep and what not to buy if any of the components I have chosen fall into that category.
Mobo - Newegg.com - ASUS M4N82 Deluxe AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
CPU - Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
RAM - Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5C G - Desktop Memory
HD - Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Video - CompUSA.com | HD577AZNFC | XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB DDR5 Video Card
This is keeping my current PSU, optical drives and case. The questions that are going through my head currently are do I really need to replace my RAM? It passed a 10 hour memtest86 run. Do I really need to replace my Video Card, its less than 7months old and I haven't had any issues with my display since buying and installing it. I am at this point really suspect it's my Mobo/CPU. Since I live somewhat close to the Compusa where I will be buying all these parts it would be simple to say purchase the CPU/Mobo and then use everything I have load up and go to see if I am good and no BSoD issues.
Anyway tell me what you would do, keep in mind I haven't had the use of my PC for a few days now and I need it up and running asap, I don't have time to wait for RMA's.
