5 years later...time for an upgrade - Page 3

post #21 of 27
I play WoW on my X6 1090T and HD7950 without an issue. My wife plays on a Phenom II 955 BE and a GTX560 SE. Both processors play well.

I'm returning from a 3 year break so I haven't raided yet but if dungeons give me a little issue raids would be as bad or worse. But overall...it seems like a perfectly good option. I just figured that at this point, 5 years after my initial build using stuff that was already a couple years on the market, it might be time to bump up to more current parts with the goal of getting WoW (that's my benchmark) to play on ultra through all aspects of the game.

Any build you chose, and once it's built. Wow should be an amazing experience.

Yeah bro you surely need an upgrade. BTW it would be really helpful for you to mention your budget alongside so as to refine your searches.

Budget...nothing in mind but the less I need to spend the better. $300-400 would be awesome, less even better...$500 max if it'll keep my system running decently for another 3-5 years.

I still highly suggest going with the OCN Build in the quotated below.

Here's what I put together on the fly.

[PCPartPicker part list](http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3D6RnQ) / [Price breakdown by merchant](http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3D6RnQ/by_merchant/)

Type|Item|Price
:----|:----|:----
**CPU** | [AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd6300wmhkbox) | $106.02 @ Amazon
**Motherboard** | [Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99fxpror20) | $114.99 @ Newegg

OR, a OCN Marketplace Build

ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard - $59 Shipped (Good price on this board)

AMD FX-8320 - $125 shipped (Solid performing 8 core processor)

PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 (AX7970 3GBD5-2DHV3) - $150 (If I had the extra cash right now I would be buying this. $150 for a 7970 is a steal)

Kingston 3x2GB 1333@7-7-7 - $45 shipped (I recommend 2x4GB of 1600Mhz RAM but this will at least get you started)

I could not find a PSU on the marketplace that would fit you needs. There are some 1000w + ones that are at phenomenal prices, but they won't fit in your case.

Total - $379. Which leave plenty for a PSU.

$334 If you don't purchase the RAM above. I would then use the saved money for PSU/RAM combo.

Yeah drop that RAM listed above and save some cash. Get the stuff listed below along with the Mobo, Processor, GPU above and you will see a definite difference in your games.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ OutletPC)
Memory: Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile Blue 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($72.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider 600W 80+ Silver Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $202.96
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-09-08 20:24 EDT-0400

Then sell your current X4, Mobo, and RAM to recoup some of the cost.
