Upgrades Advice

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.

Do not do upgrades!
There are countless reasons not to do an upgrade from a beta OS to a beta OS but people seem to think it's still ok. I can't stress how bad upgrading these beta versions is. Stop doing it, or risk losing or corrupting our data. Don't believe me, just ask "cw-kid" over at "thegreenbutton"...

What upgrades should I get?
What upgrades should I get for my current rig? I kinda don't want to spend way to much on upgrading it as I'll be building a new one fairly soon, but I just want to get this one upgraded fully first.
