So My current build is pretty old and is as follows:
inteldual core 2.6 Ghz CPU
Some motherboard that is extremely outdated(i know for a fact that no current CPU can go into it)
GTX 650 TI GPU
I want to slowly start upgrading everything except my GPU. I want to start with my CPU/MOBO as it will be the most exspensive. the only problem is that im on a budget and what i post later is about all i can afford. i want to know which of the CPU's would be better to get and if this MOBO is okay. Im worried the MOBO might not be okay because it is so cheap? So heres my options:
Question: Doesnt it not matter what the RAM is because i would have to get new RAM regardless becasue all new motherboards mainly support only DDr3 and i have DDR2.
the PSU is : APEVIA Java Power 500w 2xSATA 2x Floppy 1x ATX12V 4 Pin 6x4pin Peripheral 1xPCI express 1x20/24pin main power
Not very savvy on PCU specs but thats it i hope haha.
These brands of ddr3 desktop 240 pin cl9 ram will work; I recommend 1.5v 9-9-9-24 for the timings. Corsair, crucial, kingston, samsung, pny, patriot, and gskill are usually good brands. Do not try installing ddr2 in a ddr3 motherboard; you'll ruin the ram slot.
