  1. It really depends on what games you plan on playing, graphic intensive games require a good GPU, while RTS games require a good CPU. what games do you plan on playing?
  2. That cooler is only for LGA775 processors. You need one that is compatible with AM3 for that processor.

    Same price, but compatible and MUCH better. http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Sleeve-RR-B10-212P-G1/dp/B002G1YPH0/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1335509588&sr=1-1
  3. @ PC beginner

    My graphics cars im good with and I know it's a decent one. And I know I need a new CPU so I can get better graphics out of it. I just wanna know if I'll need anything else besides that processor and fan for it to run in my system.
  4. @ DjDe

    Thanks for that cooler instead man appreciate it, gonna try to get this in as soon as possible so games will be better. Do I need anything else to put it I for my system or just that fan and the processor?

    If you don't wanna upgrade the GPU or RAM (which it's questionable that you would need more RAM just for gaming anyway), then I'd say you're all set for now.
  6. Well I actually just got the new GPU, I got the asus radeon 6670, and I upgraded my ram to 6 gigs
  7. That's cool, just don't expect miracles with a 6670, lol. I would say that it should be good enough for the minimum 30 FPS at medium settings in most games, depending on resolution.
  8. Well for rage I have the res all the way up and for WoW I have the res all the way up and ultra settings, I saw videos of it being played with skyrum n stud n it all looks really good
