Last response: in Systems

Parts that work:
Neo Antec 550W
Radeon HD 4870
1 TB seagate SATA
cd-rom



LOOKING TO UPGRADE!
my dead 775 mobo and old e6750/ddr2


So the question will be - What do I get for a new mobo/RAM/CPU?

I'm looking for cheap/effective and will work with what I have for PSU/GPU. I don't use RAID and I don't need the best technology, just something that will work with my HD 4870. I will NOT be upgrading the video card, so don't ask. I won't be using SLI/crossfire with another card.

Looking to spend ~$300-$350 to get all three upgraded as much as I can but still work with what I have.

Suggestions, thanks!

Athlon II X2 or X3 and an amd 770 board for either DDR2 or DDR3 if you think your ram is dead too.

With $350, I think OP can fit a bit more than that (in terms of processor).

AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz - $159.00

GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 - $89.99 $2.99 shipping $10 rebate available
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OCZ AMD Black Edition Memory 4GB 2x2GB DDR3 1600MHz CL8 - $119.99 $20 rebate available

Total after rebates and shipping = $341.97

Going with Lmeow's recommendation. I want to order it today... have had no desktop for a week, it's just annoying.

Thanks much.
