Question about Upgrading CPU and Motherboard
Last edited 25/08/2015 - 15:13
I'm looking at upgrading my good old AMD CPU and Motherboard which has served me well, but cannot keep up with the demands anymore (thanks specially to Chrome).
CPU: AMD Phenom II 550 (DualCore 3.1GHz 7MB CACHE 80W)
Mother Board: Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3
Also have: 128GB SSD, 6GB(3X2GB) DDR3-1333MHZ RAM, Thermaltake V3 case with 550W PSU
I mainly use my desktop for heavy browsing, streaming videos, office tasks and very little gaming (mainly FIFA).
I don't have any dedicated graphics card as the built-in GPU with the motherboard is sufficient.
Could you please suggest any decent CPU+MoBo combo that I can utilize on my current build?
(Assuming I could use the 1333MHz RAMs' in the current gen MoBos')
Preferring AMD due to cheaper cost, but if I can find better Intel deals then will switch to Intel.
Total Budget ~ $200
I have already checked Whirlpool PC Suggestion guide but I'm now more confused…
So any suggestion would be appreciated.
