Please fill out your rig info, there are way too many people on here for us to remember what you are running. This link will tell you how to do it. It's kind of tuff to say if you need a CPU upgrade without knowing what you have for a GPU and RAM. Plus we also need to know what you do on your PC, if you game what types of games do you play? One easy way is to tell for gaming is to watch your GPU usage while gaming with no vsync, if it isn't getting at least 80% usage then I would say your CPU is more than likely your bottleneck. At the same time if you are happy with what you have then there is no reason to upgrade. Not knowing what you have for a MB, if you do need to upgrade your MB to upgrade your CPU, I would really look at going intel unless you need to do it on a budget that doesn't allow you to get a 1155 system. Remember you don't need a k series unless you plan on overclocking, this will save you some money.

Yea, you should be fine, get a new cooler and apply that thermal paste though! Also, you had a 950 when you were 14?!? yessir.gif

Yeah lol I decided I'd check ebay before I ordered off the egg as I was going to void the warranty eventually anyway tongue.gif And yeah I have the H50 but I would like to know where you guys find high purity isopropyl alcohol? lol I'm still only 15 biggrin.gif turning 16 on the 18th in 7 days lol. But I'm in India for the next three weeks (Interning at a college) and wont have my computer for another 3 weeks frown.gif

(Btw dont mind the quotes cause I have no clue how to quote inside a quote)

http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/4417765 I honestly have no idea to really check any of that information... I just..well opened my Catalyst Control program and checked out the performance while playing World of Tanks. It was averaging around 84% activity. If your asking for benchmarkings...I just don't know how to get that data from my pc. My pc also has one large clear blue LED fan, Possibly 200MM, on the right side of the case if your looking at it from behind and a 120mm fan on the PSU. It's mainly enclosed metal frame. Pretty generic and cheap.

So fellow Storm Scout owners. I have officially started my upgrade train biggrin.gif starting of course with the scout itself. And Im curious to know which way would you guys go.

Buy an SSD now or save up for a GTX 670 and new PSU (I have a gts 450 and a psu that cant handle a 670)
post #25966 of 28613
ssds are actually pretty cheap now.

i got a crucial m4 128. was retailing at 220? got it for 160 off amazon. thought in the US its probably way cheaper.. damn u guys tongue.gif

Yeah you can get 128s at about 80 on a good deal from the egg! I was looking at perhaps a corsair one, crucials have great read speeds but their writes dont seem to be all that

But alas. First I need a job lol, I'll try Best Buy first rolleyes.gif It was hard enough getting 1000$ for my first build (I saved up for a few years...) Now with 3000$ of upgrade plans (about 2000 for speaker components bought over the course of the year) I really need to get one lol
