I am fairly new to computer building but I want to get my feet wet and try to build a new computer and If I enjoy it enough, might do it in the future.
Anyways, considering I believe I have a fairly decent graphics card (nvidia GTS 250) and a fairly decent PSU (500W, not sure of make or brand, but dont feel like looking right now) I thought about building my own PC.
I thought about buying a new one all together but even if I have to replace the PSU I won't mind but my new set-up I was considering was this.
MOBO: ASUS M4A89GTD
CPU: AMD PENOM II x4 965
GRAPHICS: Nvidia GTS250
I guess my question being is will the mobo and cpu be okay with the video card? or will there be bottlenecking involved/hanging, etc basically can I still get some decent potential out of the video card? or would an upgrade be viable? If so can I have some graphic card suggestions for the mobo and processor set-up? (that won't break the bank)
I guess I should of mentioned that I already have the GTS 250, I want to benefit from Crossfire, but I read that, at least to my understanding, is that one video card can be compatable with the mobo and that crossfire/sli is more for multiple video cards? My current plan is too hold off on buying a video card until i have more money to purchase 2 crossfire compatible GPUs
thx wisecracker lol. I'm thinking of just investing the 150 dollars into a new card anyways. the more that I think about it the money that I spend on that becomes more and more practical for a "new system"
