AMD CPU and a AMD mother board in budget

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im looking to upgrade my AMD cpu and mobo to something that's more modern. My mobo dosent support usb3 so you can guess how over due this upgrade is for me. The cpu I use now has a 2.5ghz locked clock speed and is quad core. The mobo I haven't a clue on lol

 

Im going to be running the computer for gameing and video editing "fraps". I have a sapphire 7950 oc edition  gpu with the usual ssd boot and hdd storage... The computer runs everything I throw at it at max settings and 1080p single monitor though I want to squeeze that extra bit out the computer and reduce the cpu temps. This is where I got stuck and thought id check here to try and get some advice in the upgrades.

 

Budget is £200 which is around $300 and I want the price range to include both a very basic mobo and a decent cpu. I wont be over clocking anything in the rig so high end mobos arnt what im looking for more something modern for usb3 and the right socket for the cpu. I do NOT want a apu as I have a gpu that more than makes me happy.

Well, I'd suggest that you get an 8320, a cheap 990fx board ( i actually get by with 970a and it's a hundred dollars ), and budget in an aftermarket cooler. A 212 Evo if your case allows for it. There are some smaller ones, but in that case just use the stock heatsink and don't oc past 4.0

 

Edit jeeesshh, people here are pcpartpicker pro's, it takes me atleast 10 minutes to generate a list!
