PC upgrading from an i7920 on x58
Sep 20, 2012

I had this system three years back....an i7920 on Asus Pt6Deluxe with 8Gb RAM and a nVidia 285+ display. Connected to four SATA harddisks and two monitors, I have always been thinking upgrading to give me more speed and memory running Photoshop. All in sudden my machine died. I tried many ways to power up but it shuts down automatically. Presumably the motherboard dies, then I can upgrade by replacing it with another motherboard and a brand new CPU. Are there any suggestions? I am thinking using a Z77 board and a newer i7 cpu and pluming 32Gb RAM plus an SSD of 512Gb as primary harddisk.
Thank you
