Let me introduce myself!Im alex and I am 20 years old.I'm into gaming and i spent lots of hours on the pc.I have little experience with building a pc.
I tried to upgrade my old Pc(which is 6 years old) and i made a huge mistake!!I bought a really new and expensive motherboard which i found on sale .It was too late when i realised the importance of the sockets on a motherboard and i couldnt sent it back .
Here is the model:Asrock x99m extreme4.I also bought this cpu cooler Coolmaster Hyper 212 EVO(not installed yet).
I can give you a list of my purchases so far so you can get a better picture of what i am building.
I will list the current hardware that i am using:
PSU:CoolerMaster G550M GM Series 550W(new)
RAM: 8GB G.Skill modules(new)
SSD:Samsung SSD PRO 256GB Evo(new)
HHD:an old HHD of 500GB(old)
CPU:i5 750 @2.67Ghz(old)
GPU:Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 3GB OC(new)
The Motherbaord's socket is 1156 and i think it doesn't worth spending money.So i'm thinking on investing money for a new Cpu for my Asrock mobo.Aside from the fact that i have to buy new DDR4 modules 2011-3 sockets are way too expensive so i am confined to spend 400 Euros max
for the Cpu.
I got two cpu on my mind:
1)Intel Xeon E5-1620 V3
So i wanna hear your opinion about this.What would you advise me to do!
Thanks for your time!
