Im looking to either get a new build or somehow upgrade my current pc to be able to handle new games but i have a feeling ill have to do the first option.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: By the end of the month
Budget Range: 500-750 looking to stay on the lower side (without monitor)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet
Are you buying a monitor: Looking to get a 120hz monitor to go with it was looking at grabbing a benQ but they are awfully expensive maybe an alternative would be nice.
Parts to Upgrade: Everything? Maybe my case and PSU are reusable i have a 5 yr or so old antec case not sure what model but where the hard drive goes theres kind of a weird bend so maybe a new one wouldnt be a bad idea. The PSU is a 550w from what i can tell
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg i suppose but whatevers cheapest after shippin to US!
Location: City, State/Region, Country - Springfield, MA, USA
Parts Preferences: Ive heard great things about the intel cpus but you guys are the experts not me lol
Overclocking: Maybe if it would yield better performance
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe if it would yield better performance
Your Monitor Resolution: I was looking for a 23 inch so the natural resolution is 1900x1200 but counter strike is typically played at a smaller resolution like 1280x1024
Additional Comments: Upgrading for Counter Strike Global Operations
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I only get about 40 fps average in counter strike source so i know its time for an upgrade..
AMD athlon 4000+ 2.4 ghz
80 gb HD
2 gb Ram
ASUS A8n32-sli mobo
Nvidia 7800 gtx
X-Fi soundcard (def reusing this)
If you have a little more you want to spend, get another stick of that ADATA RAM and call it a day... if your really wanting to get crazy get a 7850... But honestly the build as is will do anything you want it to realistically.
