Hey everyone, my current computer is getting quite outdated so I've finally decided to spend around $700 to rehaul my system to something much better. I'm currently running a Phenom x4 3.6ghz, 4gigs ram, gtx560, 2 10kraptors, 600 watt modxstream pro in a CM centurion 5.I've been looking around on newegg and think I have narrowed the new parts down to the following.
I will primarily be using the computer for gaming and just wanted to check with some knowledgeable people to see if this is the best bang for my buck and that everything is compatible and my 600 watt can handle it before I order the parts this weekend. Thank you all and take care.
Ok, the cpu and mothrboard are good the ram is a waste as you will not use more than 8gb in gaming and since this is a gaming rig your not upgrading the video card? If it comes to a choice between a SSD and a video card upgrade then you should upgrade the video card. Take the money fron reducing the ram to 8gb and the money from the SSD and get a better video card. That will make the most difference in a gaming rig.
This chart will give you an idea of where cards fall in oder when comparing Nvidia and AMD so that if you do choose to upgade the video card you can see what cards would be an upgrade and how much of an upgrade.
