Likes # 0

Hi i am looking to upgrade my current pc here are my currents specs.

MO BO:asus m2n68 3 channel ddr2 max 8gb.

CPU: amd phenom 8650 tripple core am2+ max speed 2300mhz.

RAM: generic ddr2 6gb (3x2gb) 400mhz.

GPU: ati radeon HD 5570 1gb.

PSU: generic 650w.

what i want to upgrade to.

MO BO: Gigabyte A75-D3H FM1,CFire,DDR3 4 channel max.


CPU:AMD Llano A8-3870K Socket FM1 Quad Core Processor 3000mhz.

RAM:Kingston 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 x4 may leave at only two of depending on funds.

GPU:Sapphire HD6670 2GB DDR3.

So mainly i want to know is it worth upgrading my pc like this or just get the new cards? as my current setup can handle everything i throw at it reasonably well skyrim plays ok up to medium settings same for other games.

my HDD are just two generic ones 160gb and a 250gb was thinking of getting a Western Digital VelociRaptor Hard Drive 250GB 10k rpm as well.

You could just get the new card for now and see how it performs, if you change your mind later you can get the other bits.
