Upgrading cpu + video card

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers!


Need some help on upgrading video card please

Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3L


This is my motherboard - http://www.superwarehouse.com/Gigaby...DS3L/p/1532783
Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3L


I currently have a 8800gt in it, and its starting to fail, random colors while playing games. Not looking to spend over 150 dollars on it.


Also looking for a new processor. Links would be great

ANY information would be helpful. Thank you!

Preferences between amd or intel? Ati or Nvidia? And price range for the cpu?

Or are you looking to stay with the same motherboard also?

Well, You should get a GTX 460/GTX 480 From EVGA B-stock, or newegg.com.
