what can i get from uk for £170?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello, i currently have the above budget to upgrade from my core 2 quad, now i can either get a new processor + mobo or if there isnt enough money to do so i can upgrade my gpu instead

basically want i want to know, what is the best i can get for this money weather it be amd or intel.

i dont need ram aslong as the mobo is ddr3 and is microATX

also 4 pin for processor power if possible:)
i was thinking something like the socket 1155 as i might get around £250 in a few weeks (but this is not deffinate) should i just save it tongue.gif

thanks smile.gif

Those links both link to the same page, really good board for the money, supports all your basic needs, and you may get a good overclock from it. However, £170 is an awfully small budget for an upgrade to your current rig, I'd maybe recommend waiting a little bit, get rid of your rig as a whole, start again. Probably get around £400-450 to the right buyer, I sold something like that for £400, it only had a 8800 GTS 320mb in it. I was shocked.

Anyway, if you fancy a chat, add me on steam, might be able to sort something out for you. Steam ID: Roxborough or Firebladex11
