Getting back into PC's - Page 2

If you are thinking a budget of $400-$500 for MB, Mem and GPU this is an ok setup.

337

Sorry about the poor quailty of posting, trying to get dinner ready spam1.gif

But I think it is worth looking at MSY for some cheaper options.

That 7850 posted by ginger_nuts would give quite a noticeable performance increase if your gaming at 1080p or higher res you wouldn't need a bigger PSU for that also.

If you are happy with what you have save your money for a better case, water cooling and then modding the case, in that order is my preference.

But it is your choice.

NZXT do good cases but also CM do pretty good cases, and the new good value for money player IMO is Bitfenix.

A new GPU will give you best bang for buck though at this point, if you feel you need it.

You can always buy a case later. I would upgrade MB, Ram and Graphics card.

I like Ginger_nut's list except the ram.
You can pickup 1600 MHz 8 gb's of ram for $59. thumb.gif

Yeah upgrade the GPU. OC the CPU..

520watt, it's kinda risky if you go CF. Personally i'll just upgrade the GPU and OC the CPU with decent cooling.
No need to upgrade motherboard, you can OC that even with ur current motherboard. You should be able to hit 3.7 Ghz at stock voltage. Just don't push to much.
