as you can already see its old, however i made the mistake of buying a new ati 5770 gfx card for this pc. Everything went well i uninstalled my old gpu, removed it, put the new one in. But when i turn my pc on the screen works for 3min and becomes jaggid and unresponsive. I tryed to restart but to no avail.
I figured it must be my psu, so what did i do? i bought a new psu, a Corsair 600W CX PSU - 2x PCI-E 6x SATA.
So i took out my old moldy psu and put my new glorious corsair in, now here is the problem my pc starts fine but my monitor, which is connected via a dvi converter to my new gpu, doesnt detect my computer.
However before i had installed my new psu it detected it find, it just could not run it.
So now here i am asking my self WTF? is going on and what should i do.
Is it necessary to upgrade right now, or in a few months?
AM3+ will be out in a few months and will really drop the prices on current CPU's.
Otherwise, the 955 is an excellent CPU, especially for overclocking.
The Asus board will be great for overclocking.
Patriot RAM is great, so 1333 MHZ and dual channel 2x2GB would be excellent for overclocking.
However, the 955 will not be very stable if you go over 1333MHZ for ram speed.
I won't be back on for a bit, so feel free to PM me if you still need help with anything.
