1) sell the 7950



That's going to fund my new CPU and selling my 560 will fund the new MOBO.

Then I will be all upgraded with an AM3+ MOBO and FX6200 to sell.

I sold my old PSU today on Amazon too. I feel sorry for whoever bought that POS.

You are buying into a 1155 socket 3-4months before 1150 launches?

I know you should never wait for technology and purchase what you need but it is a new socket that will last the next 2 updates through Skylake.

I am in no hurry really to upgrade the MOBO and CPU. I can wait on that but I really want to get back to an Nvidia card ASAP.

I would diffently jump back to a nVidia card before the new titles launch.

We all know AMD will be late on driver updates.

re: How good is this PC build?


Quick question for you PC guys.... When building a gaming PC, what parts should I spend the most on?


Leaning closer and closer to building a PC for gaming, but I have a lot to learn before I start buying stuff.

General rule, spend 33% of the hardware cost on the gpu. Good power supply and a reliable mobo with the newest chipset next. Cpu last and ssd for the os. 8Gb of 1600 ram or better

re: How good is this PC build?


The graphics card should be the most expensive part (fora gaming pc at least). Make sure you grab a good case, its the most underrated part of a build. Trust me, a full tower or a nice corsair/nzxt/fractal midtower is worth the investment. If you have your budget set, here's how I'd decide my parts...

Video Card
Build type (mITX, ATX, mATX, etc)
Which CPU company to buy (AMD or Intel)
Motherboard (Which socket type you want)
Processor
Case
Power Supply
HDD/SSD
Ram

This may not be everyones opiniom, but this is how I approach all of my builds. On cheaper budgets I'd probably change some stuff up (put psu over case and cpu over mobo)
