  1. What games are you having a problem with?

    What makes you want to upgrade? What feels strained?

    Am having problems with arma2 and three with Fps, and my bulid is that still good for games today?
  3. Your CPU is the only thing that is lacking really. I would upgrade that.

    Your PSU needs to be changed ASAP. That coolmax unit is trash and a time-bomb waiting to blow up your computer.

    Your screen is more than 1080p, so this doesn't help either. If you have a 7950 you will need a GPU upgrade to max games at the resolution in addition to the CPU upgrade.

    Can u help me out pick a CPU,PSU? I also have a 23 inch led Hp that I use sometimes. Am using a 30 inch Lg ips right now, but might start using that for ps4.
  5. Have you considered OCing the CPU? Then could sink most of it into a GPU (not sure which one you have)

    H.I.S 7950, never OC before.
  7. Sort of a tossup, can go CPU/mobo/PSU or PSU/GPU - possible to even get by with just GPU, the Coolmax isn't a great PSU but still should be plenty right up through a 780 (which you have the budget for) then could put the rest away towards mobo, CPU in the future - I'd look at the Asus 780 CU, great cards

    Prob the 8320 or 8350 for the CPU, PSU, I'd look at a 600, which down the road will carry most any GPU, look at SeaSonic, XFX, EVGA or the like

    I bought the XFX XTR 650W 80+ Gold Modular PSU ATX 650, and next month will be getting th8350.
    Will that work with my motherboard, am sure I have a Am3+ socket.
  11. You will need to update to the newest BIOS BEFORE installing the CPU and then the 8350 will work just fine.
