Its only 30 days now till I get my hands on more of that lovely student loan that we either loath or love. Anyway, since BF3 looks so awesome and I am getting fed up of playing games on medium (like Fallout NV or HOMM or whatever). I will have around Â£300 spare to spend on upgrading my PC and wondered if this was a good plan of action and wanted some advice. This is my current setup:
Thermaltake Element G Case
AMD 7750 overclocked to 3.1 Ghz (from 2.7)
TA790GX 128M Motherboard
XFX 4830 512Mb Graphics card
4 Gb Generic Ram (DDR2 something or other)
OZC Modular 600w Power Supply
24 '' Dell 1080p Screen
Plan is to upgrade the MB, Ram and CPU as well as a brand spanking new graphics card to the following:
Asus M5A97 - Â£80
Phenom II 955 BE - Â£90
Corsair Vengeance 8 Gb - Â£50
This would leave me with around Â£80 left. Next plan would be to get all the replaced old parts, add them to a generic case and some PSU, hook up an optical drive and add in my spare 500gb HDD and sell that. Depending on what amount of money I can get for it (btw, what would you think a PC like that would be worth as I have no idea how much to sell it for!) I plan to either get a 6870 or a 6950.
This a decent plan? Would you recommend something else with Â£300 at all?
