Hello i have a question. i want to have a gaming specific PCs and have it to be able to run all games on ultra and most games in the future as well at 60+ fps. should i use this as a backup pc or upgrade it, i want a better motherboard and two or three GTX 680 or GTX 670s, sorry about being kinda clueless on PCs .
My components are,
(motherboard) Gigabyte, GA-MA770T-UD3P
(cpu) AMD Phenom ll X2 550
(graphics card) ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series with 512 MBytes
(RAM) 8GB ddr3 at 669.7 MHz
Are you comfortable upgrading the mobo? Give budget if you are .
Unfortunately I can't find any online distributer of that processor. So try a local shop or some other site :S.
yes im confortable with upgrading the motherboard. the only thing im not really sure on is the usb ports and stuff in that area. putting graphics cards cpu heat sinks and stuff are no problem. whats a good motherboard under 300. maby go a little higher price if its worth it, im soon to get a job and save up for a few months and buy every part when i can or when its on sale. im 15 by the way so if you guys would would you dumb down your sentances so their a little easyer for me to understand like whats good and whats bad
by the time im done i want to spend around 2000 or a little more within this year and buying little peices here and there. i mainly just need a list of quality components to use and that will play any game on ultra. i wana be able to run crysis 3 when i get it
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BWbt my friend is going to build a pc in around three months and we have all this put together. trying to stay under 1800 dollars and is all this good for him, he wants to play any game on unltra including mmos with no lag
You can throw in a phenom2 x4 965 for under a $100 and the rig you have will run nice with a new Graphics card.
Thats an AM3 socket motherbd so you'd better recheck the ram setting, no ddr3 ever came that slow. its should 1066 or 1333 stock or if overclocked then something like 1600, 1666. CPUz would show you what its running at.
