More about should upgrade
  1. Cpu - Intel i5 3470 mobo - msi z77 ram - corsair vengance 4 gb ddr3
  2. how much is that all and somone tell me if that build is good?
  3. and isnt i5 2500k better? it also cost dame almost
  4. I think he meant 3570k, because of the high end Mobo. But the i5 2500k and 3570k are both great CPUS.
  5. MSI M-ATX Z77 Mobo- 109.99
    i5 2500k CPU- 219.99
    G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600 RAM-25

    Went with the 2500k to save 10$, Ripjaws is similar performing ram for less money. This plus the 460 should be enough to play recent games at reasonable settings.

  8. Before you do ANYTHING you need a new power supply. That old power supply won't run the new hardware.

    Oh I'm sorry, mate. It will run. I just ran the specs through in the link you posted. I'm truly sorry.

    Well, at your budget it wouldn't be smart overclocking. Neither would it help much at all in gaming, when you have that GPU.

    So by saving Money on the a Intel k-version and choosing a B75 MOBO you should be good to go.

    MOBO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128555

    RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148540

    This is below your budget and I'll eat my hat if you get much more performance for that Money. Also I would advice you upgrading your GPU when the next serie comes out. :)
  11. thanks a lot im so happy i don't need a psu yet and i will also be getting a gpu this year (latest gpu)and a PSU.
