    I wish for someone to PM me with advice on upgrading my existing rig that errs towards a lower power consumption but retains good frame rate on fps!

    Anyone got a stock Intel cooler for a 3570k? I need to get this machine up and running and check it for faults. I can't do that with a waterblock attached to no system. I can get everything else sorted I think.

    I'd be grateful for one or two PC2-5300 or PC2-6400 SODIMMs if anyone has any lying around, either 1GB or 2GB, to upgrade an old laptop for a friend. He currently has a single 1GB PC2-5300 module installed, so just another 1GB would make a difference (the max supported is 4GB, 2x2).

    I've got a single 2GB DDR2-800 stick or a matched pair of Samsung 1GB PC2-5300S if they're of any use? I will admit I have no idea if they work and I haven't got a DDR2 laptop to try them in unfortunately.

    A moderatly used 780GTX for around $400 CND would be great. I can image that should be a fair price for a used card.

    As long as it works and it doesnt die on me in the next few years ill be happy.

    Received today Chris, thanks again. I tested them all and they all worked, I've used the 2GB module in the laptop and put the other two back on here as a donation with some DDR3 I had lying around :)

    The donation can be found here in case anyone's interested: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?p=3514629#post3514629

    I'm building my first real mod but im broke. I'm very worried that I won't be able to afford any overclock able parts. I could really use a gtx770 or i5-4670k. That or a good mini-itx motherboard.
    thanks.

    A board that is capable of SLI that is compatible with my ivybridge CPU. I really want to go SLI with my GTX 670 Direct CU II 4GB but man... I don't even have an extra slot that's useful.

    That'll show me for buying a cheap board just so I could upgrade.

    UV Orange PSU cable extenders? (ATX, 6-pin, SATA's, USB & Front Panel) I'm just totally broke atm, dont want to risk my PSU's warranty (while i'm broke) and CAN'T STAND the standard Corsair Black cables! A Fully Modular PSU would be awesome (i'm only using a 430w atm) but too expensive for me right now! :(

    A replacement X58 board would be nice. Mine takes a few attempts to power up. Once booted it's fine and restarts are ok too. Even bought a new PSU hoping that would fix it.

    It's a pity your in canada, I've got a 1.9ghz x2 3600 your could have had, probably would have overclocked that extra 100mhz easily.

    I think you have it worse than me. Once it starts it's fine. Probably capacitors degrading or something like that. It has always been overclocked so I guess it's wearing out.
