Currently I have the GTX 560 TI and my Seasonic 520W hooked up to an old AM2 mobo with 8gb of DDR2 ram, and a tri core AM3 CPU.
But I'm definitely not getting what I want in games, I'm tired of having horrible FPS (less than 20).

    Yes, I am getting that case most def. Okay, thanks a bunch. I haven't been able to test because my current mobo is only AM2.
    I'm buying this now since it only came out to 200 dollars, once again thanks. I appreciate the help.
