So my current comp runs Star Citizen to sluggish for my taste, even on low settings. My CPU is about 6 years old so I was looking at getting something new, but not to expensive. Just a comp for now until SC official release.

In that one I picked out a decent CPU for under $100 and decent MOBO that is compatible with my current RAM and GPU. So what you guys think?

I just hate to see you purchase something when you will for sure need a new one in a while. It looks like a good upgrade but if you can fork over a little extra cash for a more current cpu socket, it might be worth it.

 

I just upgraded from a similar MB and Phenom II processor that I just dumped on my kids.. it still plays SC though. And the bottleneck was in the Graphics Card and not the CPU / MB.

I was mainly just looking to upgrade a bit because SC isn't coming out for maybe like 2 years. So this way I can still play the game without going down to single digits in FPS.  I have a GTX 750 right now and the game runs a bit too sluggish for me.

Hmm. I'm thinking that upgrade might not make too much of a difference with the GTX 750. Not 100% sure.

Ok so I was looking at more comp stuff. And this new build is a bit more money, but I would be able to port most of it to the MAIN comp I am planning on getting. The CPU is better as well as the MOBO. I already have RAM that is compatible with the mobo and already own the GPU, and honestly I could alwasys do the EVGA step-up thing if I wanted a better GPU.

This is another build but using AMD CPU instead. It is about $100 bucks cheaper, but then I would be using AMD.

Oh just something I guess I should add, my current CPU is Intel Core i7-930.

Oh I was talking with some friends, they are techies too, and some other sites. So I just up and bought the Intel set-up mainly because my room is hot as balls and AMD would make my house the surface of the sun. Should be here tomorrow and then I can RACE better. Amazon Prime is OP
