I plan on buying a new pc. My current one is ancient and I am fed up with the loading times.
Current specs are:
CPU: athlon xp 2.9 Gz
GPU: Asus GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB Ram
Mobo: Asus A7n8x ( I think)
2 gb ddr 2 800Mhz
Seagate Barracude 320 GB HDD
Random crappy mid tower
400W power supply
Random dvd writer
I have been taking good care of it for 5 years, but it's time to move on
Apparently I need to change everything, including the dvd writer, because my current one works from time to time
I would love to sneak and 120 gb ssd and 1 tb hard in it. I can go with a smaller HDD for now.
I don't need a monitor and OS.
My budget is around 800$.
The thing is I live in Bulgaria and newegg does not ship here. But let's say we use the default newegg prices (no retails, no bundles and such). If you can find a site that ships to Bulgaria free of charge I might use it.
Please no ASUS parts. I had some serious issues with my Mobo and GPU.
I really meant Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, that's a typing error on my part.
I don\t want to consider i3 because although it's fast it has only 2 cores, and I want to have a more future proof pc. The reason because I went with AMD is the lower price. If I go with the FX 6300 is the gaming performance going to suffer? With 7870 and a bit of oveclocking I doubt there will be a significant drop in gaming performance. Any thoughts on this?
