Need help

Im upgrading my old pc for my brother to use so i need help to choose what cpu and gpu to get. The motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP43T-USB3 

The current cpu is pentium dual core e 6500. The graphics card is dead so it's the more urgent upgrade. For the graphics card im thorn between the r9 380, r9 280, r9 270x or gtx 770. For the cpu im thinking Q9550, Q9650 or xeon x5470. The power supply is 550w and the ram is 8gb.

playing modern games? What performance target?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

any of the cheaper quad cores would do well, the GTX 770 is the best GPU you should pair with this system, with the R9 380 being a bit too powerful for this era of CPU

So the Q9550 and the gtx 770? Which one of the gpus will work with the current cpu, because i can get the gpu sooner than the cpu.

the sane ones that would work with the new CPU, assuming you're using the same motherboard.

So the gtx 770. What about the r9 280 or 270x? How they compare to the gtx?

But i assume that the system won't benefit from the performance because the e6500 is slower than the Q9550

either one is fine, get the cheaper one. Sometimes you'll get a better deal on the R9 series cards.

Thanks, I found the r9 280x 3gb, 270x 2gb and gtx 770 2gb for about 40 euros each.
