Currently my PC doesn't play games too well. IT's a 2009 Emachines with the following specs
Athlon X2 250u
Some Emachines mobo
geforce 6250 se integrated
So i'm debating on whether to upgrade the Emachines or to just make a new build. If i upgraded I would add two 6870s in Crossfire, Athlon X4 640 propus, and a 700w psu.
Or i have two builds i'm debating about, the first is a SB i5 2500k build the second is a new athlon x4 640 propus.
Intel Core i5-2500K
Gigabyte Z68 D2H
8gb Corsair 1600
Cooler master gx750w
WD 500gb 7200rpm
cooler master hyper 212 plus
$700 after MIR
AMD Athlon II X4 640
G.SKILL Value Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Hd 6870 x2
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM
Thermaltake A4022 92mm CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Gaming Series GS700 700W
Cost $650 after MIR
If i upgraded it would cost $475 after MIR
Would all of these builds be able to get me 40-50 FPS on battlefield High setting on a 1680 x 1050 I would just upgrade if that could get me 40 FPS, because that's about the minimum I would like.
Also i'm not sure if it's my processor or my mobo but my processor is stuck at 1.6 ghz and it won't let me overclock.
