upgrade or not?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
well i was thinking of upgrading my sig rig with:

1. MSI B75A-G41 + Intel Pentium Dual-Core G2030 = 100€
OR
2. GA-B85M-D3H + Intel Pentium Dual-Core G3220 = 117€
along with the:
3. 8GB 1600MHz Kingston Hyper = 60€
4. 120GB Samsung 840 EVO = 90€
and that is the budget, i would like to keep it under 250€ if i can ...

both cpu's have a little less power consumption than my current c2d e7500 which is running on 3.66GHz now and a bit lower clock, regarding the similar spec that won't be a real upgrade but i will get full speed from SSD on that sata3 mobo and 8gigs ddr3 vs 4gigs ddr2 RAM ...

only thing that is bothering me is that i won't be able to OC that rig mad.gif, i5 K series are above my budget at the moment...

should i consider getting amd fx series cpu + 990fxa-ud3 mobo + 2gb or maybe 4gb of ram that would fit that 250€, i would need to wait a bit before i can get ssd and more ram ... ?

i use my pc mainly for programming, a little gaming, illustrator work ...

so what do you think?
