Between the 8 year old CPU and RAM, what's the point? It would cost me around $250 just to get it working with current games, maybe $300 as my hard drive is getting very old too. For an extra $200 I can build something completely new that will outperform my current PC, even if I did upgrade it, while having something to build upon in the future.

What about the AOC G2460PF monitor?

Can I cap my system at a certain fps so if I go with a freesync 75hz, it won't go over 75fps, or should I just get a 144hz monitor?

I have this monitor. It's pretty great for the price. Colors are mediocre from my limited experience but not bad.

You can cap it in windows/gpu control panel if you want. But trust me you won't want to lol

4gb rx470/570/480/580 is a must. Wait for sales. If not there is a Evga 1060 SC on sale at Newegg for 210 after rebates.

Edit: I forgot...1060 SC is great for small cases!!! Plus it comes with a free game!

Get a aftermarket cooler, new HD, and use 920. I got all my 920 @ 4 ghz. EZ too, well after 24 hour stress tests. Also you can grab a used 6 core for ~ $50 (same 21X multiplayer) can hit 4 ghz on 6 cores. You would only loose 10% to new chip. but as it looks the motherboards you wont be able to overclock so the 920 chip is faster(overclocked).

IM still on my x58 chipset. Only thing killing me gpu is fadeing out frown.gif

Thanks, I'll probably go with that one for the 144hz.

Yep, waiting for a good sale. Going with AMD so I can take advantage of freesync.

Save your money and just upgrade the cpu to a 6/12c Xeon, you can buy them on ebay for next to nothing and will oc to 4Ghz minimum.

Then upgrade the ram to 12gb you should be able to find 3x4gb sticks fairly cheap and spend the rest on a decent gpu.

The X58 platform is far from dead just check out my sig. I hit 9.1k on Timespy with my Ti

Ive build a similiar rig and makes a quite decent gaming budget PC. The only thing I would say is for you to add a SSD there.
