Need help with a possible PC upgrade
The itch is killing me. I have the SSD, HDD, and GPU. Case should work but I will take suggestions. I will need a MOBO, CPU, and RAM probably need a new PSU too. I don't need any thing over the top that I can't really use(like 8 cores.) I am just seeing if I can get a good performance upgrade without breaking the bank. When the 7950's come back down I will be adding a 2nd one so keep that in mind with the PSU.

NOTE: NO NEWEGG!!!!!

PSU Ultra LSP650

CASE Ultra Defender

I have never RA'd a GB thread but I am about to, stick to your fricking troll threads. It's getting bad when the GB can't be used for legit gaming shite. I post stuff for all platforms and don't get into the in fighting on here.

I'm not experienced enough to help you or else I would. Also I thought the console joke was funny.

You need to calculate power requirements including Crossfire. I am not a fan of buying off brand power supplies. It's like buying a good car and putting cheap tires on it. You lose performance and in the case of a power supply you can fry electronics. This Corsair is bronze rated and is 750 watts with modular cabling which will help a ton with cable management. It's $89 after rebates.

Anytime pal. Hopefully an MMO will come along soon that the group likes and we can play again. I might jump into GW2 again to see check it out again. Been doing some single player stuff but just an hour here and there. I do like Far Cry 3.

In the OP, but I am open to getting a new one.

I am so used to having a MMO to play that I burn through single player games so fast and then am left looking for something to play. I thought about GW2 tonight as well as EQ.

You can do better than that PSU for $90. Wait for the Seasonic x750 or x650 to go on sale again. They go on sale once every month or two ($89.99 for the 750 and $79.99 for the 650)

I'd tell you to look at Fractal Design cases but the only online place I see selling them is Newegg. Outstanding cases.
