Want to go with 6 or 8 cores if I upgrade my processor. Probably AMD to keep it cheap. The 6 gigs of ram suggests some Pentium influence, and have also thought about a low level Pentium. Also have been an avid ATI guy, but like NVidia quite a bit. Will likely stay with a 500 watt power supply.
I have a 2.8 triple core phenom and an ATI 4890 with 4 gigs of ram(ddr 3 if I remember, maybe 2) and a 500 watt power supply. Have windows 7 64 bit.
Not sure what I want to spend. My thoughts have also been never spend less than 200 on a graphics card or if so, keep in within 20 to 40 of that mark.
Would like to keep as much of my build as possible
2.8 AMD triple core
4 gigs ram
500 watt power
We would need to know the following info
What case you currently have
What resolution you want to play at
What detail you want to play at
FX 8320 (AM3+, 3,5 GHz, 16 MB)
970A-D3 (s AM3+, AMD 970, DDR3)
DDR3 4GB Dimm 1600MHz Ballistix Tactical two of them
VS Series 550W (CP-9020050-EU)
R9 270X 2GB DDR5 Boost OC
Caviar Green WD10EZRX 1TB HDD 3.5"
600 EU with another 80-100 EU for some other things and cooling
This was a pretty good reply with the fairly limited information we have been given. Why someone said all of that needed to go, I have no idea. He could realistically grab a stick of ram and a R9 270x and be gtg. However I would never recommend a green drive for gaming.
