There are a few parts I would like to keep temporarily:
-A Cooler Master Centurion case (Mid-tower)
-A 550w PSU (not sure the brand atm)
-geforce 8800GTS 640gb
My main concern is getting a Motherboard and CPU that I won't have to replace for a few years or so. I just want it working soon and would rather dump extra money into those parts while I can. I can replace the GPU sometime over the next few months. The RAM also doesn't have to be great yet, but at least 4GB.
My main uses will be gaming, photoshop, browsing, etc.
So, my main questions:
Is my PSU good enough to have for a while? And what power will I need once I buy a better GPU?
Will I need any cooling systems extra? (I know nothing about them)
Will my old 8800GTS work fine with the new Motherboard until I get a new card?
My budget is under $500. Hoping for a good combo Mobo/CPU to save a little extra.
