ok im upgrading a VERY OLD Atlhon 64 x2 5600+, and i need some help,. because i need to change almost everything, that means MoBo, RAM and (the obvious) CPU
ok here it is
im looking at 2 differents CPU, one is the Atlhon II x4 630 wich i can get for $90 or maybe a little less or a Phenom II x4 955 wich i can get for around 150...
im planning to use this mostly for gaming (for what i study i only need word and powerpoint... LOL), sooo i dont have ALL THE MONEY, but im going to get 4gb DDR3 RAM, and a AM3 MoBo with SLI/Xfire (A790-GMX) setup
should i go with the cheaper CPU (the atlhon) and get a little more ram or a better mobo, or go with the phenom and get what i can... ?
help please =)
Windows 7 64bit Ultimate... 1280*720 and HD5770 1gb
the game i played are mostly CS:S, TF2, DoDS, L4D1&2 and BF:BC2, SOMETIMES i go with Crysis Wars, and of course... almost every new game that its worth playing
i want something like 45 or more FPS stable, with 55-60 im sold
The Phenom II would offer you better gaming performance but the Athlon II would probably still be sufficient. It all depends on your budget. The 5770 you mentioned should be more than enough for your needs. In fact the 5750 should be good enoough at your resolution. 4GB of RAM should also be fine.
