Getting new gaming build
Jan 15, 2012, 9:31 AM
I'm changing my CPU, GPU, motherboard and RAM since my PC can barely handle Battlefield and Modern Warfare 3.
My budget is around €400 - €500.
These are the parts I'm buying:
- CPU: Intel i5 2400 (
- GPU: ASUS Geforce ENGTX560 (
- Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3 (
- RAM: Need 4-8GB...
What are your thoughts?
And should I change PSU (Antec 500W) for this configuration?
One last thing: how do I see my power usage?
