CPU and Mother Board Question

Hey guys,

My knowledge of computer parts are limited but I am still able to put the parts together. Currently I still have the CPU and Motherboard that came with my store bought dell Inspiron 580. My current GPU is a Radeon HD 7870 and I bought a new PSU 650W. My computer doesn't handle games very well and I wanted to ask for recommendations on which CPU and Motherboard I should buy that are compatible with my GPU and are good for gaming. Anything under than $250 for each part would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bob

  1. NE has a CPU/MB combo sale right now, $80 off, can grab both for $320, i5-4670k and MSI Z87-G45..
  2. Wow thanks a lot man these look great. If I buy these would I need to get new RAM and a new OS (like windows 7)?
  3. Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX: $150 before $10 rebate

    AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+: $120

    Win7-64 goes for $80 every few weeks or so on NewEgg E-Blast ...
    (You need it)

    I would suggest checking out the Asus memory QVL list for selecting your RAMs, though your system will likely run with your current sticks. You may likely find some qualified DDR 1866MHz (or, 2133MHz) for around $75 or so.
