Thread: New motherboard+processor

    Question New motherboard+processor

    So, the time has come. My 4 year old motherboard is starting to feel the stress of modern games, and modded Minecraft :P Even though I am going to the army in 6 months I felt that it is wise to spend around 700$ on a little upgrade. I need at least a new motherboard and processor. Was thinking about a i7 for the processor, but there are many to choose from...
    I currently have:

    AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz

    Board: 870A-G54 (MS-7599) 3.0
    Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
    BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. V17.7 09/09/2010

    Maybe an SSD will be bought if I can get good stuff for under 700$... also my GPU is not the issue since it is an AMD Gigabyte HD 7970 or something...
    If you feel like I am missing any information for you to help, please say so

    Any help and input is welcome

    Just buy a used 9XX or 10XX Black Edition , and maybe a better cpu cooler.

    Overclock shit out of it.

    save money for better things.
