I'm looking to upgrade my old broken as E8400 to something that offers a noticeable upgrade. I want to spend around 150 or lower. I will also have to upgrade my motherboard too, so all together I just wanna spend like $300. Any ideas.
Games I am looking to run are BF3, Guild Wars 2, and possibly Wow.
I got a GTX 560 ti that I love. * gigs of ram, plenty of power to go.
Thanks for the recommendations. I found a 3570k on amazon for $199. So I'm thinking about that now. I'm not sure if I like that board. I have a full size case so I think I would rather have a full ATX sized board for more options. SLI and a few more expansion slots.
That ram is awesome. I can't believe how cheap RAM has gotten.
I too went from an E8400 to an i5 3570k, Got it at a sweet price too. Haven't had much time to run it though, because of my HSF issue, waiting on the replacement to arrive.
