System speed upgrade

Ok, I have now submitted my order for the following PC components:

  • Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 Intel Z68 LGA1155 ATX motherboard
  • Corsair Vengeance 8 GB Kit PC3-15000, 1866 MHz, 2×240 DIMM 8 GB Kit(2×4096 MB) system memory
  • OCZ Agility 3 120 GB 2.5″ SSD SATA III SSD
  • Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3 GHz LGA1155 CPU

The aim here is to make the OS (mostly 64 bit Win7, plus some Linux stuff) run smoothly. Gaming upgrade will focus on a new graphics card, but more about that later.
