I am wanting to upgrade the mobo/cpu and possibly gpu for a better gaming experience.
I am going to re-use several pieces of the pc I already have.
Here is the list of things I am wanting to keep:
Corsair 430w psu
320GB hard drive
240gt amp edition(which could be upgraded if money permits)
micro-atx sized case
I have around a $300 budget to play with, any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
Well some things to keep in mind first many people do not like reusing a psu. This is because eventually they all fail and eventually a failed psu can mean big $$. second the second link is not working for me. but you could always go with the $500 best gaming pc on the site.
ram is run in dual channel for that motherboard so 2 sticks of ram will run somewhere between 5-15% faster. That is why you find ram in sets. I still recommend that you spend the extra $13 and get the extra .2Ghz with the G870. You still have room in budget.
