I want to upgrade my pc for gaming. Around 7 months ago i bought the XFX Radeon HD6870 Black Edition 1024 MB and it seems that my CPU is to bad for this card. i wanne upgrade my system for around €400 and i think the best thing to upgrade would be my memmory , motherboard and CPU. I would like to have advice about the best Cpu, Motherboard etc or any other suggestions.
Are you on a budget? Here's a $1100 upgrade that will boost your system to amazing
Processor: Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E $599.99
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 DELUXE $379.99
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM $199.99
Of course you can turn down the specs a bit, a cheaper CPU with LGA 2011 socket... I would recommend a Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz Processor. Also, a cheaper 8GB RAM won't make much difference either depending on your usage.
Hope I helped!
I'm not quite sure that is the bottleneck, but where do you want to buy from?
These will be the parts...
CPU Coooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Motherboard: ASUS, ASRock, Gigabtye...something around 100euros
RAM: DDR3 8GB(2x4GB) 1600MHz Kit, G.Skil, Corsair, etc...
That should put you right at 400euros. I dont know of any other stores to compare prices. The prices where roughly the same as USD , which I was not expecting, but still got everything you need within the budget. You should be able to overclock your CPU to like 4-4.5GHz(there is lots of how-to's online, and its pretty easy). Now, if you dont want to overclock then buy Intel i5-2400 CPU and dont get the CPU Cooler(Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo). Just pick your color for the RAM. Motherboard-wise, the ASRock, I think offers the most, ASUS is a more top of the line brand/quality and Gigabyte is somewhere in-between those, good quality, offers a lot. I would just read reviews and make sure it has the slots and all that you need, or maybe someone else can help you with it.
