Hello, I'm planning to get new components Mobo, CPU and RAM but I'm not quite sure which is the good/best ones out there right now.
I've seen some Haswell reviews and seems okay and the new piledriver from AMD. I'm not planning to break my bank to have an expensive rig.
I currently have core i5 760, p7p55D-E PRO, 4GB G.Skill Ram, 5870 GPU and 700OCZ PSU. Well I think my mobo is broken as its not posting anything nor beep errors although fans are working, GPU is working but running so fast and loud.
What I'm planning to get:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 3.00GHz (Haswell) Socket LGA1150 Processor - Retail [BX80646I54430]
MOBO: Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 Intel Z87 (Socket 1150) DDR3 ATX Motherboard [G1.Sniper Z87]
RAM: Not sure which one.
GPU: Keeping my 5870 as I like it and i don't see any point of upgrading it.
Power Supply: OCZ 700watts, keeping it as well I'm sure its compatible with Haswell or has enough power.
I don't plan to OC this rig as its pointless for my use anyway. I'm not a hardcore gamer, I only play when i get bored or need a break from doing University projects.
Purpose of this build:
- Play some games but not heavily
- To upgrade/replace my current one
- Photo editing
- University Projects, coding websites and such
