Hello, i currently have an AMD fx 4100 3.6GHz,an nvidia gtx 550ti and only a 500w psu i have £300 to spend on any improvement i could make games run smoother
i have looked at the amd fx 8350 cpu but some reviews say it isnt worth it i dont really want to buy a new motherboard i would prefer to stay will amd if it is possible
For £300 get:
FX 6300 around £100
Radeon 7870 LE from £185
You will need a better PSU unless your one is very high quality so if you need to take that out of the budget go for a 2Gb Radeon 7850 they start around £140
what power would you recommend
thanks for the help btw
would 650w be enough or would i have to go higher
is the fx 6300 a big improvement on the fx4100 and is it worth it
or should i wait until the new cpus
A good 500W power supply is enough for Radeon 7850 - 7950 This is the cheapest I recommend from Aria http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/500W...
But check Novatek Ebuyer Pixmania Scan dabs etc. for deals
The 6300 is a good upgrade from a 4100 but you could get the GPU 1st and upgrade the CPU if you find it gets to 100% usage and causes lag.
