need help for upgrade ----> OC + case mod almost finished page 7 pics - Page 2

post #11 of 72
Thread Starter 
Ill be using it to game, watch movies, music, photoshop ect... I know the graphic card is in need of upgrade too, but at the moment I dont have enough cash to replace it, and since I only play BF3 that isnt a must for now. I was thinking of gettinga new mobo and OC it, and theneventually i will get a better card. What would you recomend?

Are you able to shop on Forums?
If you are then I suggest you buy nice x58 motherboard.
Before you do however check what kinds of motherboards sizes fit into that case.

Your powersupply is a little old, but it's still an excellent design. The only downfalls that it is, is that the 12v amperage falls short of modern standards with the 12v power being a little low (at 840w, while a modern 1000w unit has more like 936w+ on the 12v rail), and efficiency only being 80+ standard. 

 

I wouldn't replace it though. 

 

You can check out a review of that unit, under the Asus name here: link
