I think the cpu and mobo need replacement as they are both about 7 years old with heavy usage. want to outfit it as an all-around computer plus gamer for games like the above. But I don't need the best graphics card; the NVidia GTX 560Ti does a good job for my needs.
However, I have about $750 to invest. I would prefer a ready built rather than a complete rebuild due to my current physical limitations. Can use or replace everything, including the fans (5 installed) on my current system.
I saw a good looking system in Tiger Direct, but on inspection found that the Graphics Card was a cheapo... So I need other help.
Just saw this on Tiger Direct. Thoughts?Alienware X51 Gaming PC - Intel Core i5-4460, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 8.1, 802.11 b/g/n, USB, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960, Black - AX51R2-4292BK $850
