My 2010 Gaming rig - Upgrade Suggestion? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
All SATA versions are backwards compatible. The only thing you may encounter is a software issue which is very rare.

Getting a new more powerfull GPU and a SSD for system drive will make your PC feel brand new and swift thumb.gif
Personally I'd have a look at Radeon HD7850 or HD6950 2GB (a bit more budget oriented).

Internet Price: $300.00
Note again: im not a fan or AMD or Nvidia, to me as long they can produce the result i want like good gaming experience with high setting or ultra whichever im happy =) im not as hardcore as my friends who have like 3 GPU all connect together running like a beast hahah im still noob with comps unfortunately =(
btw, i dont do online shopping hence my budget are tight, the places i get my stuff from is kinda like online where u look them up, order it then it gives you this code so u can go and pick it up at their local shop ( www.umart.com.au) thats where i get all my stuff from.
i think i got everyone ones question answerd if not let me know lol. xD
anyway im happy with my lil machine still just concern with the fact my GPU and the whole 3.0 will run on my 2.0 mobo or not haha and will my PSU be enough to power it and stuff..

Based on the site you gave, I saw that there were other 560ti that were cheaper than the one you chose. It's just that they weren't 2GB.

Though the 7850s on that site is cheaper than the 560ti you just listed.

http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=248&bid=2&sid=89029

The 7850s should be faster than the 560ti in most games and PCI-E 3.0 has backwards compatibility with PCI-E 2.0

Your motherboard also has sata 2, not sata 1. But sata 3 ssds will still work on your motherboard.

I don't think that major overhauls are needed until the next gen consoles lift the graphics ceiling in some meaningful way. I'd take a HD7850/70 2GB and look to Broadwell in 2014 for a totally new build.

The 5770 is not an awful card and there is nothing major in games that is coming soon it can't run well enough. If you have patience, give the GTX 670 a month or two to put some downward pressure on the 7950 and in turn, the 7870. If the 7950 hits ~$325 [and it's only $55 away now] I'd jump on that.

Sorry OP I would like to ask a few questions for the suggested SSD from A-Data...
Are these good SSDs?
I have the upgrade/update itch and I am on a budget too, and an SSD would make a nice upgrade for me... the price of the A-Data SSD is super sick......
Why choose those over say an M4 SSD? Besides price of course*I am thinking that is the main thing.....

I have a pretty steller x58 set-up with some SLI action going on as well as my cpu overclocked, I just want something new... lol...

OP ALL the suggestions are on point, just make sure you validate your choices!!.
GOOD suggestions from ALL....

haha yeh lets hope so~ thats what my original plan was, since im not that hardcore with my machine that require like crazy intensive usage for video editing or anything, like if i have the money and time i wouldnt mind going crazy about it with the whole beast mode with SLI and clocking the crap out of it but the most i used my gaming rig is mainly casual few hours of gaming or Designing thats about it, so just want a good powerful build within budget =] if you get what i mean? lol

oh yeahh i see, thanks man! definitely will have a look into those, yeh im just youtubing and seeing review and seeing what i can get the best out of the 2GB range, within budget as well. dont really wanna throw too much money into the machine yet, consider my 5770 aint that bad still play games well just not max out with all those AA stuff on =( so 7850 shall be something ill keep an eye on. but honestly the Asus HD7970(HD7970-DC2-3GD5 )3GB DDR5 925MHz OC DVI HDMI DS PCI3 that one hell out of beast tho, really love the Asus direct CU II graphics card, but my concern with getting those series is apparently they are huge and require alot of power and i think my psu wont be able to handle, and the fact also is they huge so after awhile the card seem to tilt and bend? since not enough support on the other end or something where i research awhile back...sigh

thanks for the infor on the sata backward compatibility =] definitely getting few 2TB HDD since they on $120 sale atm =]

true on that! im even suprise PC graphics are better than the PS3 hence my just sit there collecting dust lol but yeh graphics is not not as good yet hence im not bothering with a full mobo/psu/cpu change over since my mobo started off as basic so cant really do anything special upgrade unless i change the mobo first so yeh guess when time comes i will =) and yeh like i mention early my 5770 is not a bad card consider its 2 years old and still doing well on alot of games and run well. yeh im just getting information now to see and decide which graphics card i should be keeping an eye on and maybe in 1 or 2 ill do an upgrade meanwhile im gonna take the tips you guys offer about the whole window on the SSD and others on a separate HDD which will improve alot so gonna do that first. =)

I've had very good experiences with A-data personally. This drive in particular gets good reviews and is also OEM, which is partially why it's so cheap. It wont come with most of the bells and whistles like some other drives but the drive itself is good. There is a non OEM version of the drive, but it's $120 and at that point I would just get the M4 as you say. But if you want to get a super cheap 120GB SSD get the A-data, it's $20 less than the M4. I would actually recommend Crucial drives if you want really solid, consumer friendly drives rather than A-data. But the A-data drive is about 16% less which you will rather be able to spend on a GPU. The drive itself gets 5 star reviews for its OEM version and 4 star for its normal version so customers must've had good experiences with the drives. If you get the A-data it'll get you a lot of mileage, but if you have the cash to spend the Crucial will be a better as its sustained read speed is over twice that of the A-data's.
