Need some help on what to get

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I'm new to writing in these forums but been reading posts nearly every day for quite some time now.

Anyway, I got a problem deciding on what to get for my new gaming rig; whether to go AMD or Intel. My current specs are pretty **** :
processor: AMD Phenom 9650 (2.3ghz) (socket am2+)
Ram : 4gb DDR2
mobo : Asus M2N68
Vga: Nvidia 9800gtx+

I need an upgrade for sure, just need someone to guide me into what I should buy now. Help appreciated

My budget is around 500/600 €. Oh, and forgot to mention, I already got 8gb ram (vengeance) . About the 2500k.. Is it abit old now? its been out for quite some time. I'm just wondering if its worth to buy the 2500k nowadays.

Nice (ram)

The 2500k is not out of date, my q6600 is out of date, the 2500k will still a great chip and its one of the all rounders, great for gaming, great for multi taking and also great for folding

I would say its defo worth it!

Ok, and by that I assume that I should not choose amd by any chance now?
