Upgrade Path - Page 3

post #21 of 43
2GB more ram and another 5770.

It'll be a night and day difference....maybe even an ssd boot drive.

Well the best choice there is to:
-Get an Intel Core i5 2500k and unlock and Overclock
-Replace the 5770 for a Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme which is around the Same price as a 5770
-Get 2GBs more of that DDR3 RAM.

Why is everyone suggesting a 2500K as an upgarde when his board doesn't support it???

You curerntly have the 1156 socket which supports the i5-760 i suggested earlier. If you're just gaming and want to keep costs down getting what i suggested earlier would be a great upgrade.

If you want to go for the 2500K you will also need to factor in a new motherboard which would be unnecessary seeing as your current board supports quality processors. You could even get the i7-870 for that board you currently have which is better than the i5-760.

You can use ANY processor which is for socket 1156.

Ye i said he would need a new motherboard if he wanted sandybridge, he was asking why he should get a i5 760 i think when he can get a 2500k for 20 dollers more

I saw your post about him needing a new mtoherboard. I'm glad someone is on the ball

@ OP It's not $20 more if you need a new motherboard as well .

I'm merely thinking about the long term which is why I questioned as to why I should get the i5-760 when I can chip in another 20$. I don't want to have to keep sinking money into hardware. If I were to buy the 2500k + Motherboard that supports it, it will last me a while. Maybe even Overclock it.

I think this is what I should do.

So which Motherboard should I get for the 2500K?

You'd be aswell just selling the current rig and starting from scratch like you said if you plan on switching to SB. That's just my opinion :|

You're going overboard. Buy a 4gb ram kit for $50 and a killer video card and your system will play any game you want to and at good settings. You can sell the 5770 to offset some of the cost. Anyone that tells you that your cpu can't hold its own in a gaming rig hasn't built very many computers.
