upgrading PC
« on: November 05, 2014, 10:56:36 PM »
Is anyone still around here? I'm looking to upgrade my pc for basic gaming and figured cyber monday is the best time to do it. I am mainly looking for cpu/motherboard, ram, cpu cooler, maybe HD. looking to spend $200 to $300 at the most.

My vid card is pny gtx 460
power supply corsair tx 750

You're not going to get anything decent at that budget, define basic gaming

Also gtx 4xx is super old and one of the worst nvidia cards ever

If you want something at least semi decent get

Fx6350
Am3+ socket mb
8GB ram (anything more is unnecessary)
And newegg still has that super cheap 99 bucks powercolor hd6970 or find a cheap used 560Ti

If youre really adamant on being cheap get

760k
fm2 socket mb
8GB ram

you dont need an aftermarket cooler. If you do get cm 313 evo.

If you want to save up and get a decent pc

4690k + nhd15 cooler
z97 chipset mb
8GB ram
2TB HDD (2x 1TB at raid0)
256GB intel SSD
gtx 970 / r9 290x

Yeah expecting to really upgrade a computer with budget of 300 dollars is not realistically possible. If you actually want to get new CPU/MB/afterstock cooler/more RAM and even GPU to not bring your new system down, you should save up about 800-1k.
