How to best upgrade my current rig? - Page 2

post #11 of 31

Not to thread crap but what kind of motorcycle only brings in $250.00 anyways not to be like this but investing money into your current setup is a complete waste. I would sell it & save a little and go with a newer modern rig.

 

Intel Core i3-2100: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078

BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138332

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231424

 

Total: $213.81

alcapone, i know u mis understood my situation, but if i was able to get more money it would go towards a new build.

besides that

i AM very impressed with what u picked out for a 200$ budget. that was really cool. I am keeping those bookmarked and I might just do that along with the 560 ti

I didnt mean to come off as stepping on toes or sound like an ass. Sick and just read my comment sounded crappy. That build will not oc but the i3 2100 series keeps up or beats amds offerings. I would step up to a 2120 for 5.00 more

I play BF3 on my Dual Core, (Laptop) and it's not pretty. I would say go for a Quad ONLY. My Laptop Runs BF3 at 50FPS everything on lowest. Ask you may tell, my CPU is the bottleneck. I will be getting a i7 for my lappy, and then, the gaming will start. Dual Cores on BF games is a bad Idea. I would sell everyhting and buy used parts from Ebay. You will easily build a i3 or maybe i5 with a 560 in it. Don't waist your time upgrading from that low. You will just end up loosing more money. I had a AMD build with a 560TI sold everything, and got my current rig for 200 bucks more. That was a steal biggrin.gif
