Going to upgrade a PC
Posted on February 16, 2017 at 13:50
I was considering upgrading my "other PC" i.e. the PC I have in my parents' house. I'm going to spend my summer (and most weekends) there, and I would like to have a PC that can run Overwatch better than 20-30 fps in lowest possible settings.
I'm going to keep only the motherboard and the hard drives. The motherboard I have is this one (I think):
(I do have another motherboard that has more memory slots if needed, but I'd rather use this one if possible).
Anyway, here's the parts I'm considering to buy (links to a Finnish computer component store):
AMD Athlon II X4 880K
HIS AMD Radeon R7 360 GREEN iCooler
I'm definitely not sure about this. It's so cheap, does it mean it sucks? But I'd rather not spend more money on a GPU...
EDIT: Or would this be better: XFX AMD Radeon RX 460
Silverstone 500W Strider Modular
Chieftec 550W A-80 modular
I'm not sure which one is better. The latter one has more power (550W vs 500W), so maybe I should choose it?
Silverstone PS09B Micro-ATX
I already have 2x4GB RAM, but I'm not sure if they are DDR2 or DDR3, so I'll consider this one:
Corsair 8GB (1 x 8GB), DDR3 1600MHz
It's pretty expensive, though.
Probably not going to buy, yet, but if I some day must reinstall operating systems, I'll probably by a small SSD (64GB, maybe) and install OSs there.
Thoughts? I would like to know if those pieces are compatible, and if there are better options I'm not aware of.
