|So my problem is quite trivial I guess.|
I have a computer with the Asus P5KC motherboard and I use it only for my photography work: Photoshop and Lightroom. I usually make a significant upgrade every 2-3 years and the time has come now.
What I've bought (waiting to be installed):
Intel X25-M drive
Windows 7 (currently running XP).
I need more RAM and currently I have only 2GB (2x1) of DDR2 6400 CL-4 RAM.
I am no longer in the biz when it comes to computer hardware so I don't know if this motherboard is obsolete or not.
My plan is to buy 4GB (2x2) of CL-4 RAM and I hope that more memory and the SSD drive will give me peace of mind for the next few years. I have 4 DDR2 memory slots. My Q6600 processor seems to hold up pretty well for my type of use so I'm not thinking about another CPU.
Is my line of reasoning correct? Or maybe it's an obsolete mobo and it's not worth tossing money at?
