Now the parts I have been thinking of for the upgrade.

I know the Gigabyte ud3 Northbridge runs hot, voltages are a little off for cpu & ram.
ASRock Extreame 4/5 are loaded but have also weak or failty usb support.
-CPU: FX-6300 looks good all around.
-GPU: HD 7770 series. Unless a better card would support my PSU and price.
-RAM: 2x4 8gb ddr3 Somthing low profile my Mushikin ram I have now is nanometers from touching my heatsink.
-CD/DVD: meh, something under $30
I have not yet set a time to compleat this project can be a wating game if i have to wait for prices to drop. At the farthest point i have set is Feb 2014.
