In case you missed the headline (how the hell…? nevermind) I sold my older gigabyte board on ebay. And it sold for a hefty bit more than I was expecting. Hey, for a first time sell, I got it good me thinks. So, what am I going to do with an extra $50? More upgrades!!
I can hear my friends again: “Ok, I thought we went over this already.” Yeah, we did. But turns out there’s still a few things left to be changed. But hey, you can be happy because that’s only two items and $120 (coming from my paychecks) down the line.
Now that I’ve turned this post into another upgrade plan, here goes:
For cooling my Core i7 2600k:
At $28.43 this will be a perfect budget heatsink.
Note: Yes, I’m scrapping the H80 idea. Why? Because someone enlightened me about wasting my money on stuff I don’t need to. Therefore, I’m going with the Hyper 212+.
Second! A better hard drive.

Here’s where all of that other 120 dollars are going to ($90). A faster hard drive.
Anyway, selling my old motherboard puts me every little bit closer to finishing my plans for upgrades. Yay me!
