ello dear community,
so I need some advice for my rig's second upgrade this year. So, I already gave my old PC to my best friend (his mother earns quite a lot less money than my father) and now that he wants to play GW2, I have to rush my decision and upgrade so I can sell him my mobo and cpu. Right now, I have an OCed 670, 8 gigs of 1600 ddr3, a hyper 412s cooler, a HDD and a 500W PSU and a budget of 420€ (including his money), to split between a mobo, a CPU and maybe an SSD (really not sure). I'm playing mainly modded Skyrim, BF3, Anno, Max Payne 3 and other less demanding games. So, which CPU and motherboard do you recommend? Also, should I buy a cheaper CPU and an SSD or wait a little for the SSD?
Thanks for your advice :-)
