My girlfriend recently bought me G.Skill RipJaws 16G-DDR3-1600 RAM (4 sticks). My computer, which is pretty old, cannot handle the new RAM because my motherboard is old. I need help picking out a new build.
What I will be keeping: My harddrive, and my power supply.
I am looking for: a new motherboard, case, and CPU.
Budget: 100-250 (but looking for best bang for my buck)
Uses: I am a pretty heavy gamer, playing FPS games (COD, etc) and a League of Legends player. I like to run max settings around 760x1280. I am looking for a new motherboard that will be compatible with my CPU (the one I purchase), but will also let me get AS MUCH PERFORMANCE with my oldish graphics card.
So far for CPU I have been looking at 2 choices: Intel i5 3570k or AMD A10 5800k. I am also open for different suggestions that fit what I am looking for.
Does anyone know which is better? Pros and Cons of each? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong CPU's? I need help! Thanks everyone
I have been thinking of a 6300 or 6350 to pair with the two 7790's i got on your slick deal post last month slomo.
What are you using currently? Also, what games do you play?
For the CPU that is my budget. If an i5 was not out of the question, would you recommend it? And also, what about using AMD GPU, with a Intel Processor?
Your older GPU will be a bottle neck in your system. I prefer having a balanced build. It may be wiser to stick with a FX-6300/6350 and going with a HD 7850/GTX 650 Ti Boost (should be able to sell your 460 for around $60-80).
