  1. That's not a build post. Its not complete or detailed.

    Seeing you got a Phenom, that'd be where you should start. Change your cpu and mobo to at least fx8320 and 990fx chipset or go for Intel - i5 and 97 chipset mobo.
  2. cpu+mobo.

    Sorry im new to this stuff, and im not very good at posting specs yet thanks for answering though.
  4. It's your CPU. An i5 of some type would be ideal to match your 780, probably an i5-4590 or i5-4460. You could get an H97 or Z97 motherboard. The Z97 boards are the ones for overclocking, and I don't consider that worthwhile.
  5. Got a budget in mind?
