I want to upgrade mobo, cpu and ram. I need alot of help as I dont know all new stuff

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Ok Iam sick and tired of this pc. I even took it to the tech and he didnt fix it. It keeps crashing. trust me I tried so many things. so many threads. I want to keep PSU, VID CARD.

1) new mobo better the current one for sure!

2) New cpu better than the current one ( P.S Iam not going to do mutlitasking) As long as cpu is faster than the current one by alot iam happy.

3) RAMS lol lets make sure mobo supports these rams.

thank you.



btw it dosnt matter if it is amd upgrade or intel upgrade as long as it beats what i have, and nothing bottleneck anything. Also BUDGET IS AROUND $500 PLEASE make sure that w/e cpu you recommend make sure it beats the hell out of the e8400 in single core apps.

Any sort of ballpark budget?

My memory and cpu and mobo was 210, more like 180-200 now. In my sig. only thing I'd change is getting a phenom II 555 for like 30 more.

You will want a core i5-750
that's the best performanceXprice ratio for you
about mobos, it will depend on your budget...

rams will be DDR3... they are mainly all the same.... just go for the cheaper or the one you think looks cooler...

I jsut bought my self a i5 750 + EVGA p55 FTW + 2x2gb corsair 1600mhz CAS 8

cheap, and will do whatever I want in terms of gaming...


sad to see you are not liking you e8400.... im just going to give my e8500 to my brother because somebody wanted to giveme these new parts

jsut ignore this guy's post...

he is one of those that just SAY things without thinking.

you do NOT want those things.
you asked for X, he gave you Y.
I would report his post if I were you

Really? based on his current setup thats way overkill. a 555 is better cpu for him, aswell as a lower end mobo, ram is a waste after 4 gigs if not multitasking.

well he didn't give a budget and that's what i'm upgrading to, probably better ram though.
and obviously he likes to buy pretty good stuff he just hasn't upgraded in a while. see how he has a 4890 and you have a 8600. that's my point, you wouldn't buy this stuff but he would and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than upgrading to a new intel rig.
