Gaming Build Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: January 5, 2013 2:16 PM in Systems Share honx8 January 5, 2013 12:47:44 PM Hi all, I am looking to upgrade some hardware on my PC. Currently I have the following: Case: Antec 900 Motherboard: ASUS M4A77TD Pro Memory: 2x 2Gb Team-Group Elite DDR3 @1033Mhz Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.2Ghz Graphics Card: MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr III 2Gb GDDR5 PSU: Xclio 850w Since I live in Malta, I can buy hardware from OcUK only since newegg does not ship to Malta. I was thinking to upgrade to the following: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP... http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB... http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA... http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY... I use my PC for gaming mostly and am not looking to overclock any time soon. Is it worth upgrading to this setup. I will be keeping my case since I find it's still in excellent condition. Feedback would be greatly appreciated guys.
