AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 Black Edition? and..?
Hey guys im finally actually gona upgrade this time its gone beyond a joke tbh..I was looking at the AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 Black Edition
What would this cpu be like for a casual-medium gamer like myself..I have a 4850 512mb and corsair 650psu all ready but suffering really bad lag spikes and graphics lag due to intel pentium 4 and other old parts
Its goin for 134.99£/146€ on overclockers uk compared too 166€ on pixmania.ie
I also want to buy a motherboard and some new ram. I dont want anything fancy with the motherboard would be happy with just one pcie slot to keep the cost down and maybe be able to put <8gb ram or more? Need some ram too would like some ram too 4gb would be nice but i can go for just two if it would be ok..Would like to keep the cost down as much as i can but dont mind payin for quality either
Id like to buy stuff that would do me for another 1-2 years.
Also when i get the new stuff would it fix the blue screens i get alot and other little problems or would all that be to do with the hard drive ?

I'll let someone with more knowledge recommend a motherboard, but I think you'd be very happy with the Phenom II X4 955 and a 4850 for casual to medium gaming. The PSU is good too. A BSOD can be caused by a lot of different factors... there could be a memory problem or a malfunctioning driver. But if you're going to do a major upgrade like this, you'll have to reinstall Windows--which might clear up any issues with old or conflicting drivers.
