Rig Upgrade

Postby Zenthon » Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:38 pm

So my formerly god-tier comp is getting pretty old, and I need to find a place to upgrade it. I'm definitely thinking that it's the graphics card that needs a boost, since it's a GeForce GT 545 and apparently that card is kinda trash now. You guys got any suggestions for a new one that'll run higher-end games well?

lol. Can't make any personal reccommendations as of yet. I'm running a geforce gtx 650 ti, but It's paired with a 2.66 ghz POS processor and an old ass MOBO so I can't really say how good it is lol. Have to run it at low graphics and still lag in zvz. Getting processor/mobo/memory upgrades wednesday. might have 'em installed a week later.

Get used gtx 470, 480, 580...any of high end old generation are good at play sc2 with ultra. Probably hundred bucks. Save da munny to by Intel inside. If cannot afford a i7 use another gtx as dedicate physic gpu help sc2 performance.

I have still never had lag with my setup:

CPU: AMD FX4100
GPU: Radeon HD 6770
MB: ASRock 970 Extreme 3+
RAM: 16 GB DDR5

I mean it. In 3 years playing SC2 (ladder, HA, HA3) I have never had any lag (caused by me). I have lagged out of 1 game 1 time because I didn't realize windows auto update was on and it started updating mid game :(

And that build (with case, OS, HD, power supply, etc) cost me $650 total for my machine. Most of that is not available anymore, but you could do the same build I am sure with whatever similar components replaced it.

This would be a similar build (and where I would start if I was making a gaming machine right now...I am not one to spend 1000 bucks either):

FX 6300 - $109
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819113286

GA-990FXA-UD3 - $119
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128514

Radeon R9 270X - $139
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814127760

I'm sure you can find the rest of my 3 year old build for a similar price (case, HD, RAM, PS, etc). I spent the same money on those 3 items above basically in my $650 build (within 20 bucks total I know that). I'm sure if you started with those 3 items and got the rest of the stuff, which is easy to fill in from Newegg, MicroCenter, etc for a decent price...you could have a $650-700 machine that will play fantastic.

GTX 750 TI 2GB - $80 at newegg

I had that card for more than one year. I am able to play HA3X at 2560x1600 at extreme setting without any lags

Is there some site I can go to to check if I'll need a new power supply to upgrade to a certain graphics card?
