am trying to upgrade my computer for the first time. i have windows 7 home premium,64 bit cpu -intel pent D 3.99GHZ 2CPUS 3.GHZ.--4GB MEMORYDIRECTX 11NVIDIA GEFORCE 8500GT -- 600W PS05 ALPINE GOLD FAN PSU SLI &4 X SATA. JUST GOT RADEON HD 6950 GRAPHICS CARD SO NEED HELP TO FIND MOTHERBOARD AND CPU TO SUIT AS I SAID IM NEW TO THIS SO ANY SUGGESTIONS GREATFULLY ACCEPTED
I would definitely start with a new power supply. A 620w modular unit from Seasonic should work nicely. The Intel 3570K is a great cpu and I also suggest the ASRock Extreme 4 motherboard. You don't mention your budget though, so it is harder to make recommendations.
