Don't bother getting a new cpu. If it's over $20 you may as well get a new mobo then because even if you can get it working with throttlestop, the vrm will limit you.
I just sold 4 midrange gtx *60 cards last month and I think 970s are overpriced right now. Best option is probably a 480/580 8 GB for like $80. 470/570 are going for the same price and 1060 3 GB/970s are closer to $100 USD.
That must be your disability right?
The 570 8GB is the same price (if not cheaper) as the 1060 3GB and is much better
maybe I will get the 570
The reason I don't buy amd is they use sockets and not lga. I owned a 939 and I like nvidia so it was a sli motherboard and they price gouged a fx cpu that was a dual core and this was like in 2010 and it was a 939 then so they gouged the price for the cpu and I ended up bending the pins as a noob misstake so I don't buy amd anymore
If you can get it for $70 or less sure. I wouldn't even bother with more ram though. Whenever you start playing games that use 4 GB of ram, your quad core will start to show its age. At that point you can get $40 case, b350/b450 mobo and r5 2600 or r7 1700 for $120-135 if you watch ebay listings for a week or two, 2x4 GB CL16 3200 MHz DDR4 kit for $60 on sale. That build would last you at least 5 years. Don't sink anymore cost into a completely outdated platform.
The other day I was looking into switching from X58 to X79 but it just didn't make sense now that Ryzen is available.
You're going to forever swear off the only other cpu manufacturer because a decade ago you bent some pins?
Id go back to amd again I was just butthurt. So I don't know anything about amd motherboards or anything like that whats the chipset called b450? I own a case and a psu and storage. WIll you help me user with pc part picker and get a amd build.
They charged $200 in 2010 for a fx cpu at 2.4ghz and I added too much artic silver 7 and I checked to see if the cpu cooler was seated properly and it stuck to the cpu cooler and even though the lever was down it came out and I didn't know and I went to reseat the heate sync and fan and I didn't know the lever was still down on the socket and it bent the pins. There's more to the story. There's no excuse to price gouge a cpu like that to someone who doesn't know what they're doing.
I understand that you have a disability, but what you are saying is something like this: >I will never buy burgers from McD again. I bought a McD burger and it came with fries and a packet of sauce, and I was squeezing the sauce really hard and it squirted into my eyes, and there is really no excuse for this to happen!
I'm still mad about it I don't like they use sockets I still like amd I might go back to using amd again I stopped caring desu
it was timing too I got back into pc building back when sandybridge was new and it dominated amd in the benchmarks so that has a lot to do with it. Id buy amd again now but I'm still butt hurt that I could've bought a i7 890 instead new back then without knowing because I was close minded the same way about intel
