Default Upgrading my system.

Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a new motherboard, CPU and Ram, but I'm not sure what will work best with my system. Any suggestions? My budget is between 300-500$

my current system is:

Ergon 750w - Powersupply
ASRock ALiveNF7G-GLAN - Motherboard
AMD Triple-core 2.1 GHz - Processor
6GB DDR2-800 @ 400MHz - Ram
ATI Radeon HD 5770 - 1 DDR5 - Graphics Card
Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion - Soundcard

Default Re: Upgrading my system.

Your board will handle up to a 95watt cpu.
ASRock > Products > ALiveNF7G-GLAN > CPU Support List

this is the best:
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $161

It will most likely require a bios update to run.

You already have 6gb of ddr2 800 ram. Why do you need new ram?
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
