Hi everybody, I did a build a few months back but am looking to upgrade a few components. My main focus is getting better performance in games. Out of the list below which would you recommend I upgrade first and, if possible, give a few recommendations.
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W (Unlocked 4th core (Phenom II B40)) Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 HD: Samsung Spinpoint F3R HE103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
More aboutwhich components upgrade first
You want better performance in gaming, I would upgrade your GPU to the ATI 6950 1GB, at least. This will give a very nice performance boost!
I second Tecmo's advice. A gtx 560 or 6950 would help you out significantly. Your mobo does not support xfire, or I would suggest another 5770 for a cheap performance boost.
