PC Upgrade advice

Hello all

I want to upgrade and will need a new motherboard/processor and ram - motherboard must be able to hold 2 graphics cards. I will be running Win7 64 bit.

I have a budget of around 300 or $485

I will mainly be using it for gaming - I already have psu/case etc etc. I will decide on a graphics card later.

What would you recommend?

Looking forward, I would choose a board that supports an i7 Processor and DDR3 RAM. Choose a GPU from there.

Do you have anyone in the US that can ship you parts...or do you have any vacations planned for the US? Parts will be a good bit cheaper here.

I would recommend Asus' 1156 motherboards. The i5 760 for $150 USD at Microcenter and 4GB of Corsair DDR3.
