Indirect August 4, 2012 2:44:35 PM xtreme5 said:your budget please? PSU is must? About 400-500USD. I believe hardware is a bit more expensive where i live than in the US though (I live in Norway). I have a cooler master 750W PSU, so I guess I dont need a new one. Related resources Help me find my bottleneck and remedy it please - Forum Stock Q6600 bottleneck question.

Get the answer xtreme5 August 4, 2012 3:04:17 PM If you takes my advice then no need to upgrade your cpu that is enough for gaming, i7 950 is still very best choice for gaming so spend more money on a decent GPU something like GTX 670 will do the job. Here it is, http://m.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814... or if you like to upgrade your cpu then you must upgrade your mobo first again i'm advising you do not upgrade your cpu. Indirect August 4, 2012 3:58:37 PM Thanks. Ill have a look at the GTX 670. I understand its the best card in its price class? xtreme5 August 4, 2012 10:45:10 PM Indeed it is thats why I suggest it to you that card has abilities to maxxxed out every game with decent frame rates, a friend of mine running it and he got 50-60fps in all the latest games with maxed everything.
