1. What processor would be good to upgrade it with and will be suitable for my mobo?
2. What's a cheap and good CPU cooling for my mobo socket? because the stock that I'm using is getting pretty loud now
3. I really want to upgrade my video card and it says my mobo can do crossfire, so what is a good, reliable to enough to run games on medium settings and affordable but not too cheap gpu that i can buy? (btw i'm just a medicore gamer)
4. Should i still add some more memory or 4GB is enough if i'm gonna do an upgrade with my processor and video card?
5. Finally should i buy a new psu? considering that I'm planning to do a crossfire and overclocking if possible
I will gladly hear your Recommendation and Suggestions! Thanks in advance!
RAM: You're good.
PSU: Good deal for that antec rolli59 posted--not the best deal ever, but solid still. You won't be wasting more than $15 if you wait though. If you're never planning on using dual graphics cards, a 500W will do with all but the most powerful gpus. The PSU manufacturer matters for reliability. The Amperage on the +12V rail tells a lot more about capacity than listed wattage from a bad manufacturer (Logisys 600W PSUs have the same amperage as Antec 380W PSUs). You'll want at least 25A or so. I'd go for 34A.
I agree with Dalauder but only because i went the cheap alternate route. I bought the Athlon II x3 450, and a ASRock 770DE+ motherboard so i could keep my DDR2 memory (4gb) and I upgraded to a MSI R5770 Hawk. Wow what a amazing difference from my stock Presario and a HD 4350.. I love my new setup, sure its not top of the line and i cant run Rift on Max settings totally but i can have them almost all the way up with 40-50 FPS. So it really depends on your budget but I can definately say that the "cheap alternate" is still definately a great choice for a budget pc. cheers!
@delauder, rolli59: I've decided to get the AMD phenom II X4 for my processor, Tried to look for a combo at new egg, but all I see is with GTX 560s which is really way up my budget and I really don't need that High end card
