Been out of the game for awhile...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I've only just come back here as upgrading was pushed back due to finacial issues, but a lot's changed since then from what I can see!

When i was on the ball a Q6600 was pretty much top of the line, now I'm lost, with all of it, and now looking to upgrade on a modest budget of about £250.

I'm looking for a graphics card, motherboard and a new monitor.

I've seen a nice 9800GTX in the for sale section that I might nab. As I sold my last one and am running on a 6200! . I'm going to keep my CPU and RAM, but would like a mobo that can overclock a bit, as mines rubbish, dont mind used or anything.

Same with the monitor, used is fine, 24" would be great but I don't expect much with my budget.

So, could you help me? or tell me whats changed since i've been gone thanks!

Quad cores are still mainstream.

i7/Phenom II X6 is top of line from each company.

Transition to DDR3 RAM

ATI is now AMD

500 series is newest from nvidia, 6000 is newest from AMD.

Sandy Bridge *Intel's newest processors, still i5/i7*

I don't think you missed too much. The overall building process is still the same.
