So I am looking to upgrade my computer for gaming, in a couple of months here like 2-3 because my Power Supply went, and i don't think the motherboard is good anymore as well. The problem is I don't know what to look for i built this one myself and it worked pretty good for 3-4 years until now. (this is my first build).
So this is what i have
Case: Thor V2 ATX Full case
Graphics Card: Gtx 550 TI
Hard Drives: 1 Sata 3 drive 300 gigabytes (has my OS on it and all my school files and such). and a
Western Digital WD Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Processor: I5-2320 3ghz LGA 1155, 6MB cache 95W
Disc Drive: idk what it is exactly because i lost the box but it uses sata 2 and plays dvds
RAM: 2 2gigs of Ampx 1333ghz DDR3 Memory
Like i said i just need help with finding a good Motherboard for all that and a good Power supply and Hopefully some more ram. Any other suggestions that you could make to help my build further down the road in it's life would be helpful too (as in what i should upgrade next ect...). I also want to know if upgrading to windows 8 would be a good thing right now i have windows 7.
Try looking into a corsair power supply, you wont need too much power so the corsair cx600 should be fine. for The motherboard i am a big fan of the asrock z77 pro 3. it has everything you need and even more.
Will upgrading to windows 8 be a good idea ? HELL NO !
These are just my opinions but you could ask some other people.
