New pc/upgrade
      21/11/12 05:14 AM
I want to upgrade from my aging q6600, and consider reusing my Antec sonata solo (1) case and corsair 520hx powersupply. I guess they should still be fine although they are 5 years old now?

These are the components I'm looking at:
-Core i7 3770k, this seems to be the most powerful cpu available at a reasonable price? (better than 3820?)
-Asus p8b75 (no particular reason for this board, I have good experience with asus and this seems reasonable priced, is this a "good" chipset?)
-32gb Kingston hyper x 1600mhz (I sometimes do a little orchester programming, currently using 4gb, is 32gb way to much/overkill?)

It's been a few years since I last upgraded obviously, so I'm not sure f.ex how much ram I "need" or can use etc. I use cubase: mixing real bands, a little with orchestral programming and programming band-type music with vsti's. And also appreciate a low-noise computer. Any tips or recommendations are highly welcome.

Regards
Svein
