Hey guys

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
its my birthday soon (May 13th) and I should be getting money (£100-£200)
what do you recommend i buy?

I was thinking
Either:
GPU
Motherboard

I would like a good GPU but also I would like that with a 4Ghz CPU which this motherboard cannot hit but the chip can.

I'd say the 2500K would be a good upgrade. With either an Asus or ASRock motherboard and some G.Skill RipJaws. You can easily hit 4GHz on those.

A new gpu sounds like a good idea, Although if you buy used you will probably get more for your money

Or i know it's a long shot but if you could scrape another £100 together you are so close to being able to get a 2500k and mobo combo , Perhaps sell some current parts on flea bay.

You could buy another borard but there is no guarantee you will hit 4ghz so it's a gamble.

I would prefer to keep any system I own, I still have my 1st ever computer (600Mhz Celeron, 112mb RAM, 4GB HDD) in my living room xD

but i will see how much i get, things are so god damn expensive around here.

im maybe thinking these 2 cards:

Being you don't have the budget to upgrade your platform I would go with a new MB as long as you know your CPU is good for 4ghz

The last thing you want is to buy a new hot rod card and have it be handcuffed by and under acheiving CPU clock

That being said, Motherboard that is capable of taking you where you want to go would be first on the list if I were in your shoes ....

If there is anything left you may look at some quicker memory

thanks for the suggestions, since I cannot buy online considering i do not own a paypal account, I will go to the computer fair and check the prices on their graphics card (5770+)
The day I stop using this HD4650, i will be so happy. XD
