Lots of Black Friday deals out there ... maybe I should buy a new motherboard?

And which one do you have now? And did you get to replacing PSU?

I did buy this PSU but I'm still a bit worried about not being able to use more than 2 HDDs. Thinking that the mobo (ASRock Z87 EXTREME3 - Haswell) could be the problem, maybe I should just buy a new one?

Maybe, you could find a good offer for another Haswell mobo. ;)

But on your link I don't see any Haswell+DDR3 motherboard. They can be a bit of rarity today. King is dead, long live the King. And the (new) King is DDR4.

Yeah, I think I've changed my mind. What I'll do instead is keep using my current equipment and when it gets old, I'll buy a complete upgrade kit with mobo and PCU. Then I'll just connect my HDDs to that.

I kept my same PC until it just didn't cut it anymore (too little memory, too slow). Then I got a mid-high range PC that should keep me going for 4+ years. :)

This is my hope also.
