A quick Google search came up with this forum and it seems like quite the friendly place. My problem is I am unsure on what to do to my current PC build. I am not doing any serious gaming on it at the moment, but I would like to make the switchover to PC gaming when the PS4 and new Xbox come out later this year. I want a rig that will be able to play brand new games on pretty good settings.
My current specs are:
AMD Athlon ii x2 250 @ 3.00GHz
4Gb DDR3 RAM
Radeon HD 5850
What I wanted to know is should I upgrade my current rig by simply switching out the athlon for the phenom ii x4 965 BE and then invest in a better graphics card later down the line? Will the Phenom last me a year or two, or maybe even more? Or do you guys think I would be better saving my money until closer to the time and investing in a new AM3+ mobo with an FX series chip?
Any input would be greatly appreciated guys!
Thanks in advance!
