To start with, I've never built my own pc, so I really don't know what I'm doing or looking for.
Right now I'm using a HP Pavilion a6813w, I upgraded the video card to a Radeon HD 5750 and have a OCZ Fatality 550w PSU. I'm wanting to add more so that I'm able to play games at high settings, would love to be able to play Crysis 2 when it comes out.
So far I'm thinking I could get by with a new mobo, cpu, and ram, and keep my PSU and video card, until I can get some more money.
Right now my budget is around $500 and I'm really interested in the AMD Phenom II X6.
The case I'm using now is fairly small, the mobo is 9.6inches x 9.6inches, so I'll probably need a new case as well.
Ohh and will DDR2 ram work in a DDR3 mobo?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. and sorry if this post doesn't make much sense, I'm really tired, long day at work.
