My current build, Mainly use it for gaming.
- AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
- ASRock 970 EXTREME3
- OCZ Technology 90GB Agility 3 Series
- G.SKILL Value Series 8GB
- Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 500 GB
- Seagate SV35 1TB 7200RPM
- AMD Radeon HD 5770 1GB
- Rosewill CHALLENGER Black
- Corsair H60
- CORSAIR CXM series CX750M
Give me some ideas on what to upgrade with the amount of money I have.
If this is in the wrong section sorry.
Just upgrade the GPU. Maybe grab a 7850. The Phenom is still a competitive CPU, and will handle the 7850 comfortably. That's the only thing that I would do with this given build and the given budget.
Grab the 2gb variant if you want it. It shouldn't make too much of a performance difference, unless you want to play a lot of Skyrim.
Should allow you to play most games on high settings.
Unfortunately I cant find that one anywhere. But if I manage to get another $30 I might get this.
The 270 is basically a rebranded 7850 with some up-to-date features. Comes with 2Gb of Vram as standard. You might also consider the 7870 at a slightly higher price point, which will beat the 270.
Either way, you'll find that any of the aforementioned GPUs will allow you to play games at 1080p on high/ultra settings. Very balanced with the rest of your system too.
Thanks for the help really appreciate it.
