My mobo only has room for 1 single slot gpu (wifi card beside) and the 9600ocx runs to hot for my liking (65c idle and constantly freezes while playing cs:s) . Is it worth doing a new build? or should I just upgrade mobo n gpu?
current pc is:
amd phenom II X2 550
Build i have in mind:
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
MSI 790X-G45 AM3 AMD 790X ATX
PowerColor AX5770 Xfire
Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB
havent decided on CPU
Powercolor cards get broken very easily! That is based on my personal experience.
Keep your fnger away from Powercolor. It is just cheap product with cheap quality.
Get HIS, Sapphire, XFX, MSI, ASUS, EVGA, or Gigabyte.
^+1 you need neither a new rig nor a new mobo (unless your current mobo is broken) , just upgrade your GPU to HD5770 or GTx460.
P.S USB WLAN is not expensive, just get one if the internal PCI WLAN gets in the way.
