Help me help my buddy out.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
He wants to upgrade a few components,but keep his current mobo. All this is spending the least amount but gaining the most FPS.

Right now he has:

CPU- E6300@1.86
GPU-9800gtx+
RAM-400mhz (6400)

That's also what I told him to upgrade. I have his CPUZ file but can't upload it from my phone.

What's some good options?
And don't tell me to go SB,i7,or even wait for IB. I have discussed these options with him. Currently it is not in the cards. So help!!!

** Also if anyone knows how I get the text file to be viewable on here so anyone can view it, please let me know.

I don't think I can see your cart? Its not showing.

I'm trying to keep it the least amount possible for him.

They just surf and game. Nothing heavy. They are WoW addicts. MMO stuff. No Crysis or anything.

He would like it to not stutter on a 25man raid? If I said that right....

Should I go for 6gb ram? Since it will slower then most ddr3?
post #7 of 35
4 gig is fine for wow, make sure hes using 64bit windows . if he already have 4gig ram all he needs is to change his cpu to a much faster dualcore and shouldnt lagg in 25 man raid or in bg's. can he oc with the motherboard he has now ? if so he should try to oc that e6300

I was going to have him a get a quad core. Is that too much? Different ram defiantly.

And no new gpu?
post #10 of 35
get a quad if can if not get a that dual core i posted would be good . dont need to change gpu. as i said before i had a gts250 its about the same card as that gtx 9800gtx+. what resolution is he playing at if hes playing at a 1920x1080 then maybe get a new one lol . but i would get the cpu first see how it goes . goin from a 1.8ghz cpu to a 3ghz cpu in wow makes a big difference in performance.if he does want to change his gpu i would get a gtx460 or maybe you can lend him one of yours lol and use his 9800gt as a physx lol
