Rate this build - upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7
I'm upgrading my computer from a 2008 build. I'm not trying to make it top of the range, just so it can run Windows 7 64 bit and modern games smoothly. I am aware that the graphics card is outdated but I can change that afterwards easily if it proves to be too much of a slow down. It's the motherboard and CPU I'm most concerned about.
OS: Windows 7 64 bit Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P RAM: 8GB DDR3 SSD: OCZ Vertex Plus Sata 2.5" 60GB HDDs: Samsung SpinPoint T166 HD321KJ + S166 HD082GJ Optical Drive: Samsung Super WriteMaster SH-S203 Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 3850 Case: ThermalTake LANBox (only takes micro-ATX) PSU: Corsair HX520 520W Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster
