Hello, I am looking to put together a gaming rig around an old GTx 480 I have. I'm looking to spend around 400$ on a Mobo, CPU, Ram, case and PSU.

The components don't have to be 2 weeks old, but I would prefer them to be in good condition both visually and physically. I will take a scratched item like the PSU or case, depending on how bad it is.

I would prefer to use an AMD Fx6300 6 core mobo or better. Preferably a good AMD one for 100$-ish or lower

A mobo like an Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ or something similar

A PSU that's brand name, and at least 750 watts like a Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

A full Tower that can fit a long GPU, and has nice airflow like Cougar Evolution-W ATX Full Tower

1x4gb or 2x4gb of DDR3 (2133 or higher) RAM- Depending on the price, I am willing to go to lower clocked RAM as long as it's brand name.

I live in the Western part of the North-Central United states, I am willing to pay for shipping. Payment options can be discussed with the seller.

i do have a giggy 990fxa UD3 (ver 3.0) if interested. PM for details.
you won't need RAM speed above 1866 on AM3+ platform for any gains.

You do know that 1600 mhz ram will perform similar to 2133 in most situations. Also do you need a 750 watt power supply for sli or what is the need. Not trying to discourage but allow you to see a wider range of parts that will fill the job.

I plan on upgrading this system, and I don't want to replace anything but possibly the CPU. The GTX 480 requires at least a 600w PSU, and the 6 core CPU would also take a toll on the PSU.

As I said above, I am planning on swapping out the 480 for a 290 or 2x280's in Crossfire.

Also now that I've done more research, I am more willing to buy lower clocked RAM, as I found out that after a certain speed, the benefits do not outweigh the cost

I just meant that most people have 1600 mhz ram and it is easier to find for a great price. Also sorry for missing the upgrade info. I still can;t see it but i guess im blind. Anyhow a 750 is a good psu for that. Are you sure you need 2 280s for gaming.

I have a MSI 970A-G46 + FX-6300 (Mobo + CPU combo) barely used (bought 1 month ago from NCIX) and ended up selling my gaming PC in parts.

Willing to let them go for 150$.

Let me know if you're interested
