Hi guys, I'm gonna upgrade my whole pc and i want to get your opinion on this.

This is my current setup for now:
mobo- ecs g41t-M v2.0 (socket 775)
proc - intel core2duo e7500
ram - 2x2gb ddr2 kingston
gpu - geforce 9600gt
psu - generic 550w


This is the list that i think will be great for a new gaming pc:
mobo - lga1150 Gigabyte Z87M D3H
proc - lga1150: Intel Core i5 4570 3.2-3.6 Ghz (Quad Core) Haswell
ram - G.Skill RipJaws X (Dual) 2x2gb ddr3 1600 CL9 (F3 12800CL9D 4GBXL)
videocard - inno3d gtx 760 2gb herculez 3000
psu - Aerocool (Strike X) 600watts 80Plus Bronze Modular
cpucooler - hype 212x
case - Raidmax Cobra


If you have any suggestions and opinion on parts that is needed to change please let me

Additional Info:
Im planning to buy first the video card and psu and ill try to mount it on my old cpu will it work? Will it give me a decent graphics even if my cpu is bottleneck?

For the rest of the parts of my cpu I'm aiming to buy it maybe on december.


Thank you in advance..

Hi. I think you re better buy 2*4GB ram. Better PSU Like 650-750w
XFX , Seasoniic, Rosewill capstone..
This is only 550w PSU that I will say is good enough.

Other is Corsair RM 550.

This 550w will be enough if you do not plan making SLI in future.
Since MoBo do not support SLI you can not do it. So you do not need big PSU.

Thay you sir for replying. What if i want to add a GPU and SLI in the future. Can you recommend a good mobo for my build that i can do SLI in the future? and also is this a better psu: Seasonic M12II 620w Modular 80PLUS Bronze (620W) or Seasonic S12II 520w 80PLUS Bronze (520W)?

Sure. Gigabyte X-D3H ATX mobo is good.
For SLI you need bigger PSU than 620w.
Better take 750-850w.

If you look cheap big psu. This is it. Full 1000w and price just 90$

Do MX D3H have SLI support? If it do have. Then you can SLI.
If you buy 780 it depends what card you will upgrade and how much wattage it needs.

For example this card needs lot more wattage than regular 780 if you OC it to max out the performance.

How about this one for the mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme4. It supports quad SLI and SLI and much cheaper than the gigabyte version. Is this okay? Safe to say is that i should get atleast a 750w psu so that i could able to run a higher card than 760 or SLI it. Is it right?

That works. If you buy a GOOD PSU. If you buy 750w PSU that works only good for 450w then you re in trouble.

AsRock is not so goos as the gigabyte. But maybe it is good enough.
Here price for MoBo.
