sup guys i had been researching because i want to upgrade practically all my computer, haha. first i was looking at intel CPU prices, but they are too expensive for me. my maximum budget is like $300 i think.

i want to change mobo because, just to give u an idea, the maximum CPU supported is intel core 2 duo e7500 and i want a quad. i will change the case too

this is what i found, if u find something better at a better price plz tell me. And one more thing guys, i just shop at amazon there is were my dad buys everything, se he helps me with that.

this is what i found:

Mobo: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-790XT-G45-790X-2600MHz-Mother...

Case: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026FCI2U/ref=s9_simh...


CPU: http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-Socket-Quad-Core-Proce...


if you find anything better plz tell me guys, the main reason for this upgrade is for the CPU and that my computer is compaq.

any comment will be appreciated!!!

The Phenom II X4 955 is an excellent CPU. I have one overclocked to 3.8 GHz on air and it performs very well. (My graphics card is my bottleneck :(  ). I have a similar mobo to that one as well, just with the 770 chipset. It's good, except the OC switch is useless. I was originally going to get the HAF 932 but it ended up out of my budget so I went with the NZXT LEXA S.

Hi.

U have a good case, good CPU but not good mobo. I suggest to u that go with an AM3 mobo and DDR3.

Unfortunately this is the rig that i can build.

1- Phenom II X4 955
2- MSI 790X-G45
3- Case + RAM

$379.96 before shipping and tax.

So, ur build is fine for me until u can get a better mobo.
