Upgrading

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know y'all get a lot of these, but each is slightly different. I'm looking at getting new mobo/chip/RAM for my Blue Beast. It must be AMD. This is for a gaming rig. I don't need the BEST thing, but mid-high range will do. I love Newegg. What do u suggest?

You already have Mid-High range. Though if your going to upgrade, might as well go to the i7 Extreme with a nice Asus Mobo, and some G-Skill Ripjaws. Maybe SLI some 570's. But, if this is for gaming, just stick with what you have. You have a machine that will get your through till the newer stuff comes down in price. It would be a waste to upgrade right now with the rig you already have. I have sensual feelings for NewEgg too, but that does not mean that I want to give them my entire life's savings. I know that PC upgrading and power is very addicting. But you must learn to draw a line.
This is how life as a PC Powermonger starts. We come to this site, or sites like it. We cannot stop till we are way on top. Next thing you know we are competing to make sure we have the strongest computer on our side of town. By the time we all are old people, there will be a 12 step recovery group for PC Powermongers.
The meetings will go something like this:

"Hi, I am Bubster and I am a PC Power addict." (the others say: "Hi Bubster")
"My kid had to wear cloth diapers cause I could not afford the disposable ones. The gas was off in my home in the dead of winter, I thought it was a good thing cause it kept my processor cooler." "My Dodge RAM never had gas in the tank cause I always needed more RAM." You need to know how to draw the line. Your current rig is fine!!!
