Hello, I am looking to upgrade my old system somewhat and I needed some advice on a few parts in particular. First I am running a new "MSI N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card" http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I bought that card to improve my gaming rig but it did not do enough and I realized I needed at least a new mobo, CPU and ram to get the most of out it. Anyways I have been looking at this Mobo (but i am open to suggestions) and would like a suggestion on the CPU and maybe some good 3gb or 4gb ram.
Thank you both for the responses and suggestions. I have a couple of questions about the builds. First, will I be getting the most out of my Nvidia 460 GTX with an AMD build? I had heard that you get more from Nvidia with intel whereas AMD/ATI go together.
My second question is what makes p67 mobos better than p55? Does it just support a better CPU? Again thanks to you both for the suggestions and any other suggestions would be helpful, i'm looking for a mobo/cpu/ram for 500-600 bucks.
1.There is no difference in performance of a graphics card based on the vendor of the CPU. A faster CPU will mean a faster system, but your graphics card, nVidia or ATi, will not run faster or slower just because your CPU was made by Intel or AMD.
