I was thinking about upgrading my old rig a lil bit and thought about asking you guys, which would be the best cpu & mobo comp for me. My budget is about 250€ but a couple of extra euros for a lot better gear wont hurt my financial situation too much . I'm also wondering if my PSU can handle the new cpu & mobo, so some clarification with that would also be appreciated.
It depends... both options are based for the PSU. If you want a Intel, use a Core i3-2100 ($120) with a Mobo GIGABYTE GA-Q77M-D2H ($140) that makes = $260 Dlls (In Euros its less obviously...)
If you want a AMD, use a Mobo GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 ($100) and a AMD FX-6100 ($140) that makes = $240 Dlls
Everything was checked in Newegg.com in the USA with dollars.
I perfer the AMD packagek, more powerful, perfect for OC and for graphics
