Here's the deal, I have a fairly decent pc platform that I built in late 2008. I would rather try and upgrade a few components rather than scratch the pc and start over (be able to limp along on the pc for another 3 yrs). I would like to upgrade my ram
to 8gb. I tried this recently by buying an extra set of the same corsair ram, but the mobo kept crashing even after lowering the ram speed. Any ram recommendations? Also I would like to get a good sound card and video card(replacement). Something with 2xdvi out and 2xhdmi out. Please let me know your thoughts and/or recommendations. Max budget is $500.
