I am upgrading my computer, I have a Acer Aspire X3990. I am buying a new case, Motherboard and RAM. The PSU is only 230W so i am not sure if i have to buy a new one. I have 350$ budget, could maybe go higher. Current specs CPU: Intel i5 2320 GPU: NVidia GT 530 Motherboard: Acer Aspire X3990 (its custom made for this model) RAM: 8 GB DDR3 665 MHz PSU: 230W Acer Aspire X3990 (again, its custom made for my model)
Is there something else i should upgrade (like the Graphics card)? I can run some games in 1080p but most are 720p.
So my mom decied to buy my computer, so now I am going to build a new PC. New buget is 1200$, I might go higher if needed. I live in Norway so i can't find every type of part here (like Mushkins memory), the price is also a bit higher (550$ is about 650$), This computer is going to be used mainly for gaming, no redering or editing.
Update: AMD or Intel? Thinking about going with AMD both CPU and GPU (want to have a dedicated GPU) beacause they are cheaper and I am not going to be using CPU intetensive programs.
