Memory would be good, but this uses ddr2-800 RAM which is not so cheap (compared to what DDR3 is going for).
I don't want to throw too much money into this system, as I plan to upgrade in the next year.
Current system is:
Q6600 running at 3Ghz
Abit IP35 Pro motherboard
OCZ DDR2-800 RAM (2x1GB)
120GB SSD drive
3x2TB drives in RAID5 for storage
Antec Sonata Designer 500 case with 500W earthwatts power supply
My other concern is if the power supply will be enough to handle the new video card.
If I can get that used 560 ti, I may look at getting a more heavy duty power supply that I can eventually move to the new system. Maybe pickup a water cooling solution too that can move from current 775 socket to 1155. Can see if I can get the CPU higher then 3GHZ then.
Also running windows 7 32bit, so anything more then 4GB and I need to do a reload to 64bit.
