NEED HELP TO BUILD NEW GAMING PC

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello in 2010 i builded my gaming rig and now i wanna uprade my GPU becouse i have an old GT 9600 (ye is old lol)
and procesor if needed (i can try to keep my cpu for now if is still good)

i mainly play Planetside 2 which is a huge CPU and GPU eater. (i have 30fps on low)
i wanna try to play it on high or ultra with stable 40 fps)

So my question is which GPU i should buy? i dont care if si AMD or Nvidia
my budget for GPU is max 200€ / 280$ and for the rest 600€ /833$

and again i m cool to uprade only the GPU for now if the rest is still good

my curent build is in my signiture.


tnx for the help

I would get this:

GTX 760 279.99

i7 309.99

ASUS MB 159.99

Memory 154.99

That leaves you around $210 for a cooler, PSU or case.

Edit: In all honestly you don't even need a cooler because the stock is fine.

limeX if that pic is you i will come over and give you a card biggrin.gif

check the fps here and see if there is card there that you fancy - say 770 downwards, as this may cater for your budget. Not familiar with your currency thumb.gif

I wouldn't bother with the i7 honestly. i5s are basically identical in games. 16GB of RAM is way overkill; all you need is 8GB (2x4GB), maybe 12GB (3x4GB). Put that money towards a better GPU (7950 or 7970 used, R9 280(X) - don't bother with a 270X - or GTX 770, 670, or 680) or an SSD (Samsung 840 EVO and Crucial M500 are always good bets) instead.

I completely agree. go with something like
i5-4670k
gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP
8gb ddr3 ram
gtx 770

I checked amazon prices you should have about 200$ after those parts to spend. You can get better CPU cooling (which i would recommend first), better motherboard or a new case or something. How are prices in you country?

Honestly, you should be fine with your current CPU. My dad plays constantly with his i7-930 @ 3.5GHz. Just overclock it a bit and you should be fine. Upgrade the GPU to a GTX 770 and you will be able to max the game. Also, check some forums to see how to turn down the particles, they really kill your FPS.

As far as everything else. Get a nicer monitor, you have enough ram, and get a nicer case. Honestly your rig is pretty good, just the video card is ancient.

280Xs are just 7970s with a new name. If you can get a 7970 used then it wouldn't be a bad investment. You could also try and look into a 7870XT, used of course. It's somewhere between the 270/270X/7870 and 7950/280.

GPU brands? They don't really matter. Get whatever has the best looking cooler (not aesthetics of course, but performance) and/or best warranty and/or best price.
