Is this a good update for casual gaming ?

Hey Guys im wondering if this is worth updating

I have a core 2 Duo 4300 @1.8 ghz
2 gb ddr 2
a Asus eah 5670 1 gb ddr 5 over clocked
And A 600 watt Psu
And a Fox conn g33m02


The system i will be getting is a
AMD FX 4100 3.6Ghz
8 gb ddr 3
MSI 760GM-P21-(FX)
Same Psu and Maybe the same graphics card

Should i get that or different ? I dont want to spend loads as this is only 150 pounds :3

  1. get an i3 3rd generation with a compatible motherboard , the i3 is way better than the FX 4100 for gaming, i would recommend a gpu upgrade too but seeing as your on a tight budget ,the cpu is more critical in your situation

    Is the Amd radeon 7770 good ? with a cheap cpu ? say a AMD Quad Core A10 5800K ?
  3. yeah the hd 7770 rips the 5670 apart in performance ,and the i3 3220 is still superior to the A10 5800K , but if you prefer AMD CPU's go with with the AMD FX-4300.
  4. yeah get the 7770, it's a great light/moderate card. As for cpu go with the AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo). It's only like $40 more than the a10, but is the fastest AMD cpu!

    He will be doing casual gaming though so i doubt he will run into multi-threaded games, single core performance on the i3-3220 is superior to the FX-8350
  6. Well then he should get an i5, more power and future proof!

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504 Less than $100 more than i3!
