Getting a new motherboard, need some help
I am going to be getting a new motherboard and CPU. Is there anything else I need to upgrade in this process? I have 8g RAM currently with a 650w PSU. I have a budget of $600
IDontUnderstand said:What is your GPU and case? Are you using DDR3 RAMs?
I am not sure at all in regards to if they are DDR3, my GPU is a GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Concerning my case, it's just a standard HP pavilion one I was thinking I will most likely have to buy another tower.
I'm pretty new to all this.
here's my current specs http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02016581&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en not including GPU and PSU
This will do you good in gaming for at least 3 years, and more if you're willing to lower settings.
