I am in need of a new video card as well as a new power supply. I already picked out a power supply, but I do not know if it will fit with my computer..also I don't know if a video card with fans, etc? would fit either. Here's a picture: the video card is on the bottom there I think. ALso if anyone has any suggestions that'd be awesome..
I have 8 gb RAM
750 GB HD
ATI Radeon HD 3650.
I play WoW mostly and I love video games..so I want to buy a decent one, nothing over 400 dollars though.
My processor: AMD phenom 9750 quad core processor.
I was also wondering if I should replace the processor as well..It's either 2.6 ghz or 2.4 ghz.
Sorry if this is complete ramble and jumbled..if you have any questions, I'll answer them as best I can.
Rosewill is not a very good brand and 1000w is almost definitely more than you need.
To find out what motherboard you have download and install CPU-Z; http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
Run it and click on the mainboard tab. Tell us the manufacturer and model it lists.
Alright, from what I am reading your motherboard can use AM3 CPUs of 95w TDP or less. Upgrading is definitely a good idea as your processor is 2.4ghz and the original Phenom architecture was never that great to begin with. For $400 I would recommend something along the lines of these;
Well you don't need a new motherboard to use a decent CPU like I said. The 945 is pretty good.
To get something substantially better you would want to get a Intel Sandy Bridge i5, a motherboard to go with it and some DDR3 ram which will be at least $250, probably closer to $300 or so. It's not a bad idea if you can afford it.
