No it would NOT be more optimal to keep the current graphics card and use it on W7 or get a better PSU. When you can upgrade to windows 7 or 8. You could save money by going with an i5-3450 z_4 June 12, 2012 5:51:13 AM Here's a build suggestion. It goes slighty overbudget, but includes a 1TB HDD, better GPU, and a Z77 chipset based motherboard. Have a look: Motherboard & HDD: $160 - Biostar TZ77B & Samsung Spinpoint 1TB PSU & RAM: $75- Corsair CX500 & Corsair Vengeance 4GB CPU & Optical rive: $193- i5-2400 & Samsung GPU: $210- Zotac GTX 560Ti Case: $35- NZXT Gamma Classic Total(Excluding Rebates): 674 USD Rebates: $50 You can alter the GPU to 6870 worth $170. Save $40 and then upgrade the CPU to i5-2500K (combo with DVD burner) worth $223. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
