  1. I suggest a SSD and a 7870?
  2. Or just get ssd and save up for a bigger upgrade.
  3. oh and i have a h60 and is swiftech fans any good but im using my tx 3 evo now so do u think should change the fans on tx3 evo just some crappy fans on it
  4. It kind of depends. Your GPU is only a generation old, so if you're fine with the performance, then stick with it.

    You could upgrade your CPU, but then you'd have to get a new board and maybe new memory as well.

    Maybe you should save up, and upgrade your whole rig at once.

    Exactly. I think the ssd is the only upgrade that is worth it, imo.

    Since you only have a 1600x900, probably no.

    Although, you could get a new screen.. :)
  11. or if i can find a hd 7950 for cheap would that be ok
  12. if i upgrade my mobo and cpu i have 1600mhz ram will i need to upgrade my ram ?

    No, unless if the new mobo doesn't support the make and model of RAM that you have.
  14. so a fx 4300 inst much of a upgrade over my phemon

    No, you would be better off if you can get a 7950. Way better off. You will actually notice a ssd upgrade then a processor upgrade.
  16. so at stock spped the phemon will not be bottlenecked of the hd 7950
  17. Well you have oc'd it, should be fine.
  18. Hey I'm of get rid of my h60 and getting better cooler would a thermaltake frock any good
