Build PC For Gaming. Need advice!

December 16, 2012 8:25:54 PM

Hi everyone, i have an Asus Cm 1730-05 desktop that has been upgraded a little from stock i believe. This is my first time trying to build a better computer and i need advice on a few things. im trying play games like BF3 and Farcry3. i want to buy an AMD Radeon HD7950 GPU ( here's the link to that GPU: [...] 02006#top) but im unsure what processor would be ideal for running a GPU like that one as well as a decent power supply. i Also wanted to know if i would have any problems with my motherboard not supporting the graphics card for any reason or possibly a more powerful processor. i tried to figure out what motherboard i have but couldnt figure it out. i opened my desktop and say PCIe 2.0 X16 if that helps.

Here are my specs and i hope i gave enough info (if not just ask :)  )

- Model: Asus Desktop PC Cm1730-05

-Display: Hanspree 22' LCD (

- OS: Windows 7 Pro 64Bit Service Pack 1

-Current GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT 440

-Processor : AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1065T 2.90 GHZ

- Ram: 8GB

- PSU: Ac/Bel PC 9045-2A1g 313.9w Max

-HDD : 1 TB

- MOBO: Dont Know :/  Says PCIe 2.0 x16 on it though

Please help me out here, any advice would be much appreciated!
