|Upgrading my pc and just wondering if these parts are a good match for each other.|
Will use existing hd, 2 dvd burners, x-fi sound card, 9800 gt
CPU - quad core either 3.0 or 3.2 ghz (I do a lot of multitasking and photoshop too) not sure whether to do amd or intel, the amd is a lot more affordable though
mobo - whatever combo deal newegg has for the cpu, asus board though they always last forever with me
ram - 2x2gb ddr2 1066 if possible, I heard something about amd on asus boards having an issue with 1066? (on xp so no point in going over 4gb)
case, this one assuming it'll all fit
psu - this is in a combo with the case
Is 750w enough power to be future proof for 2 hds, 2 burners, 1 sound card, 1-2 video cards, quade core, 8gb ram, multiple fans
I need a recommendation for a heatsink/cooler for a quad core, not sure what to use, only thing is it has to be quiet! I cant stand how loud the current cpu fan is.
Now as far as gaming go, would a 3.0-3.2ghz quad core, 4gb 1066 ram, and a 9800gt (think it's 512) be enough to run max settings on empire total war etc right now?
