Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm also a newbie to the PC world... so please help me with this problem.
I had an old PC, bought it on 2002 and the VGA's fan had been melted twice so far and I was thinking of buying a whole new set (except for the monitor since I already own a SAMSUNG P2370).
I only have a 640usd budget, and as a noob, I randomly selected a few things as such:
The i3-550 + P55 chipset is the previous generation; I would suggest the i3-2100 + H67 chipset, since the architecture has advanced so greatly in the recent months. The i3 can hold its own against the AMD six-cores in games
Pass on the WD Black hard drive and go with a Samsung F3 1TB; it is faster than the Black and is significantly cheaper.
You should be able to afford a better GPU with that saved money, so see where that gets you.
Thank you for the reply, it really is helpful for me. ^^
and after I talk to some of my online friends, they said that GTX 430 are not good and need to be changed.... so if you have any opinions, it'd be good (for me, really)
