Ok anyways this build started slowly and will grow in time. First few upgrades where a different Case, Ram, Video Card and the the next big step should be a MB if im thinking right.
Don't get me wrong the pc dose decent on most games but I'm looking to expand.
Athlon x2 II 220
Crucial Ram 4GB
Seagate 500GB Harddrive
Power supply: is a 600W cooler master i pulled from my old machine when changing cases.
HD5570 Saphire GPU
So the next upgrade I'm thinking is the motherboard. Had a couple ASUS motherboards and they been good for standard uses. Looking threw the budget boards/this site recommended boards for over clocking, I'm looking at a gigbyte board. I was thinking of just using my stock CPU and hoping it can unlock 1-2cores but information i found searching the web. It looks like it's not a unlockable cpu since it's a newer revison.
So anyways lets get down to business and make sure my head is straight before buying items.
This motherboard stands out, compare to the other one's in the 0-70$ Range. with 4Ram slots, lets me use my current ram till upgrading. With a total of 32gb support.
Now as seeing the 2nd step should be a upgraded CPU, there's a few options under 100$. But i seem to find lots of great reviews with the
AMD Phenom II X4 965.
It seems to have better reviews for overclocking etc then the newer version of amd cpu's.
With looking maybe to get 4.0Ghz or so out the cpu a new cpu cooler seems like a good idea.
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Then after a couple months when i have more money to throw into it would be Ram > GPU upgrade.
So any thoughts/suggestions are welcome, I'd just like to know if the items/my head is on the right track. Thanks for Reading.
