I am trying to upgrade my pre existing pc to a beast for the year 2016.
Here are my current specs:
Processor AMD Athlon(tm) X4 760K Quad Core Processor
Speed 3.8 GHz
Number of Cores 4
CPU ID 178BFBFF00610F31
Video Card AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (saphire radeon r9 280x duel x)
Chipset AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
Dedicated Memory 3.1 GB
Total Memory 4.0 GB
Pixel Shader Version 5.0
Vertex Shader Version 5.0
Hardware T & L Yes
Vendor ID 1002
Device ID 679A
Plug and Play ID VEN_1002&DEV_679A&SUBSYS_A003174B&REV_00
Driver Version 14.502.1014.0
Memory 8.1 GB (HYPERX)
Is there an easier and cheaper way to fix this as I was just throwing in hardware to show you an idea of what I want. I only want an AMD graphics card as its better for me and doesn't crash. I choose the r9 295x2 because its two r9 290s! :O
The memory is something I wanted to upgrade to. I want min 16gb and max 32gb.
I need no operating system or accessories like a mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc.
I used wired Ethernet at 150 mbps, max 1000.
I have a 1 tb hard drive but 490 gb is left and also if I get a new pc can I just reuse my old hard drive or do I have to clean it and restart.
The case needs to be big enough to fit a graphics card that is GOOD (better than a r9 280x)
Power supply needs to be over 750 because estimates is 733W.
Please help me slim down the price and make this pc an easier build. All my old parts beside the ram will not fit into my new pc. I am going to sell my pc I am currently using and I am thinking about asking for $500. Is this good or should it be higher or lower? Thanks for your reply and if you need more info please fill me in!
EDIT: I would like to run this pc as quiet as posible! My xbox is louder than my pc currently and I added two extra fans to it.
