What should I upgrade for $400? - Page 4

post #31 of 34
So it seems you have to USD 200 for the rest of the components. right now the HD 6950 can be sold for USD 100- 110. so that leaves you USD 300 - 310 for the upgrade. get a HD 7950 . sapphire is back in stock (was out for a while).

if you have an ANTEC 500w i would suggest a ROSEWILL CAPSTONE 550M or SEASONIC G550. both are 80 PLUS GOLD rated PSU with 45A on +12v rail. 5 year warranty.

www.amazon.com/Rosewill-CAPSTONE-Certified-EPS12V550-CAPSTONE-550-M/dp/B008BUST0O/

also once you get a new PSU push the FX to 4.5 ghz otherwise you are going to be bottleneck the HD 7950.

Well my previous post allowed you to upgrade both graphic card, cpu and powersupply. You can choose the graphic card or cpu cooling over the other. That should still fit within your 200 range.

If you don't want a Samsung 840 Pro get a Plextor M5Pro wink.gif
