Hi, i've been looking to upgrade my PC this past while-mostly use my PC for gaming but notice it's running rather slow and choppy on new release games.
Was wondering if these components will work together if combined..I'm terrible with numbers and computers so I thought i'd post it here before buying them and noticing they are faulty together.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Processor
ASUS P7P55D-E Intel P55 ATX Motherboard - LGA1156 Socket
(Current Motherboard is a M3A32-MVP DELUXE ASUSTeK)
SAPPHIRE ATI Radeon HD 5570 PCI-E Graphics Card - 1GB
(My current Graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 Overclocked, would there be much point upgrading my GFX card to the above, or could anyone recommend anything within the £90-£120 price range.)
Thanks in advance!
1. you don't need to upgrade your mobo to run that CPU, its on your CPU support list. what CPU do you currently have? plus enzo has already stated it won't work on the new mobo you listed since its for intel CPUs, not AMD. http://www.asus.com/Product.aspx?P_ID=ESv3v4AmCdP1GdRp
2. going from the Nvidia GTS250 to the ATI 5570 is a downgrade
why are you upgrading your PC? are you having gaming issues? in what games? what are your PC specs including cpu, ram, psu, and monitor resolution?
I know my ram is an immediate downfall. I was first of all going to upgrade it with more DDR2 ram. But thought there was no point if I wanted to upgrade further. I don't want to limit myself with bits and pieces that are a few years old.
I read the above, the Motherboard was a bad idea then xD. My final flaw..is that I only use my Computer for simple games, i'm very much a WoW addict...and can feel that my current system is slopping. I only play WoW, and have done because any other game i've played skips and lags because my PC is abit out of date, and I hate playing a game with low end graphics-ruins a few key factors for me. If my system was better, I could expand my gaming choice if you catch my drift.
Could you recommend how I could "Up" my system so it was a steady, ready for gaming rig? My budget isn't huge, which is a shame. But i've seen excellent systems being built from scrap with less than £400.
Considering the information i've recieved, I looked towards these Motherboards-
