I want to upgrade my computer for tax returns. Here's my current specs:
Antec 900 case (original version) w/ Seasonic 620W Modular PSU
AM3+ socket Asus M5A99X Evo motherboard ($150 mobo)
AMD Athlon II X2 3.0ghz Regor
4GB G. Skill dual channel memory (2x2gb)
XFX Radeon HD 5770
500GB Caviar HD I want to buy this CPU: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX
1) I think i'll be happy with this, but since I already have an am3+ motherboard, should I just go with an am3+ cpu
. is it worth it (including the extra cost)?
2) I need a heatsink and stuff so I can overclock. What's a good one? I don't want stock. I do plan on overclocking. What video card should I buy to *MAX OUT* Battlefield 3 with good FPS (over 30) at 1080p?
Once we figure these couple of things out I can decide what else to upgrade. But right now these are my two concerns and I don't know how much either will cost.
Thanks for the help all.
