What should I upgrade? Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: September 7, 2010 12:55 AM in Systems Share TheOKAY September 6, 2010 8:51:46 PM My specs: Amd Athlon II 630 @ 2.8 GHz Ati Radeon XFX 5770 4(2x2)Gb of DDR3 Ripjaws @ 1600 ASUS M4A79XTD Evo Should I get another stick of ram, a second 5770 for crossfire, or a new processor? Or maybe I should get a aftermarket cooling fan and heatsink for intense overclocking of the cpu? Cheers, Theo More about : upgrade sp12 September 6, 2010 9:18:31 PM Overclock the CPU. Spend 20$ on the Hyper 212+ , you won't regret it. m 0 l rolli59 a c 104 B Homebuilt system September 6, 2010 11:09:15 PM Really no need to upgrade unless you are playing at a high resolution. If you are another 5770 and overclock on the CPU will give the best experience. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Would it not make a difference? m 0 l tecmo34 a b B Homebuilt system September 7, 2010 12:55:28 AM In gaming, there is little difference after 3GB of RAM. I second getting an aftermarket HSF and overclocking. If you plan to game at higher resolutions, I would add a second ATI 5770. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
