Hi,

Currently running and i7 with 5850. Everything still silky smooth but would appreciate suggestions on which direction to take on a whole new rig (under $1200) in the next few months. Bit of a broad question I know but I'm new to blogs/forums etc.

Also, and I know it's a bit shameless, but as I'm recently taking steps into blogosphere/forums id appreciate website feedback.

Planning to do some more hard hitting stuff soon but have a few grumpy rants in the field and beyond at www.maxevda.com.

Cheers on either point,

MAXEVDA

Is it one of the older 1156 i7's or a sandy/ivy bridge one? From there I can help you get the parts lined out.

It's an i7 920. About as old as you can get I think.

Be great if you had some suggestions as I haven't even looked at the market for the last few years since I bought it.

I'd build one around a 3770k, decent motherboard, and either a 670 or a 7970
