    Budget upgrades.

    Thanks for the replies guys, but a little more detail on the i5 would be good. Currently the haswell i5 4430 barely fits my budget, the newer 8 series boards are also priced ridiculously high in my country, $150+ for a basic B85 board, hence i was more leaned towards getting a AMD based system...

    Low budget upgrades.

    But i wont be able to use a decent SATA 6.0 Gbps SSD right? Due to my outdated motherboard which only supports sata 3.0 Gbps?

    Low budget upgrades.

    Honestly, nothing, im able to play all games maxed, some games need some minor tweaks here and there, but thats okay. Other than that general usage is also just fine, PC never slows down whatsoever, thats why im not sure whether i should upgrade or not.

    msi 560se - is this particular model quiet?

    Not talking about 3ds max in particular, but an OCd 7770 shows decent compute performance. http://www.anandtech.com/show/5541/amd-radeon-hd-7750-radeon-hd-7770-ghz-edition-review/21

    msi 560se - is this particular model quiet?

    Well id say a 7770 OC would make more sense, its on par when it comes to games, would cost somewhat less and will consume less power.

    Hi guys, i wanna ask if the recently released most wanted has good PC performance? Is it well optimized? Because my GPU usage stays around 60% and the frame rates are around 45 on average, with a GTX 560 and a resolution of 1366x768. My video card had been under performing lately, but the issue...

    Crysis 3 Alpha Discussion Thread

    It really does Melt our PCs.. my 560 which runs all games maxed out, gets about 25 FPS, on high settings i guess, But i guess this is still the alpha, so it may be that it isn't yet optimized properly?

    Drastic decline in performance.

    I dont know wat was wrong before, but there was compound on, guess it dint make proper contact.. some pictures of what was in there before : Games seem to working good now.. :) The extra overclock on the AMP edition seems to have a difference of ~5 frames in games.

    Drastic decline in performance.

    The CM 212 is kinda out of my budget :P Since i wont be doing any overclocking for now, would that deepcool be good?

    Drastic decline in performance.

    Yep i do, 3 of them.. and ill get some mid range thermal paste, not many seem to be available online.. i thought of getting this : http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/Z5/ Should i also change the Cooler? If i do, this one is for cheap.. will it be good...

    Drastic decline in performance.

    Okay so in search for a low cost thermal paste and i thought this would be good : http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/Z9/ Should i also change the cooler?

    Drastic decline in performance.

    Yes, i think CPU overheating is the prob, temps hitting 100C while borderlands is on.. just on the starting screen that too.. whereas the GPU temps still stay to be on the lower side, and the clocks stay at 950 Mhz.

    Drastic decline in performance.

    woah.. its the CPU overheating i guess.. temps rising like crazy, within about 10 secs of the torture test using prime95.
