I am new to this forum and computers.
I am upgrading my PC as it can't run most of my new games.
I have budget of 900 USD.
C2D 7400 @ 2.8 GHz
2 GB DDR2 RAM
INTEL DG31PR MOBO
250 GB SEAGATE HDD
450 WATT PSU (GENERIC)
XFX nVIDIA 8400GS
I am looking forward to replace everything i have except the case and HDD.
Please suggest me what is the best i can get in this budget including CPU,GPU,MOBO,PSU and RAM.
Also if i can utilise any other current component other than HDD and CASE???
Thanks for Help.....
Your CPU isnt bad, its no cutting edge, but it should do fine , at least till sometime next year, after the new gen CPUs are out.
I would suggest 2 things, get another 2gb of ram and upgrade your GPU.
Since you have a generic PSU, I would not go for a power hungry card. The 2 cards listed bellow should have bear the same power consumption as your current one, but much better performance.
So something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125346&cm_re=GeForce_GT_430-_-14-125-346-_-Product
Or maybe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125304&cm_re=geforce_240_GT-_-14-125-304-_-Product
This card will consume more power, but its also considerably more powerful, and will match up very well with your CPUhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161309&cm_re=radeon_5750-_-14-161-309-_-Product
