  1. I also have a bytechip powersuply 600 W

    and

    and old case, so i am guessing i could use the dell optiplex 745 mobo and scrap it torgether with a new video card, i want to play games like CS:GO and Dota2 on high if posible...
  2. What is your budget? you can build a rather cheap rig for 400 dollars and achieve what you want.
  3. You could just get a Geforce GTX 560 for about 150$, it is DX11, fairly cheap and has alot of bang for your buck. Another option is the 560 ti, it is in the 240$ range so its a little more pricey but it is better in that it has more shaders and cuda cores
  4. No point. The system is obsolete and there is no point spending cash on it.

    Thats why i suggested the cheap rig build, there are planty of options. I just didnt want to ruin anyones day by saying their computer is...eh...a little out of date to say the least. But really mate, invest into a newer computer.

    Yeah actually, i want to build a new rig using parts i have, like an AMD 64 Athlon x2 (on a dead M2N-E SLI)

    Should i just get another MOBO and the GTX560?

    or tell me, how can i build a 400 rig, i'm in mexico btw

    NO I think it is better NOT to upgrade your old PC for a new rig because it's a waste of money. I know it because I did it all the time and ended up with a crap. Just let your old system stay and if you wanna upgrade go and build a new PC. Or if u want only GFX upgrade then goto a Radeon HD 5450/ Geforce GT 520 or something like that...you can view hi def vids and do VERY light gaming with those...but if u want any better GPU then u MUST upgrade your PSU to a decent 500W atleast. And always remember NOT TO go for a old graphics card because they consumes more power than new ones. Good luck with your upgrades :)
