I am upgrading my cpu, graphics card, power supply, and I am adding an ssd.
This is my current pc:
This computer is an IBUYPOWER- I-Series 301
CPU- AMD FX-4300 Quad Core 3.80 GHz
RAM- 8 GB
GPU- GeForce GT 610
Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3
HDD- Toshiba DT01ACA200
Power Supply- Allied SL-8320BTX
CPU- AMD FX-8320E Eight-Core Vishera Processor 3.2GHz Socket AM3+
GPU- AMD RX 480 (when released)
SSD- SanDisk Ultra II 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDHII-240G-G2
Power Supply- Thermaltake PS-TPD-0850MPCGUS-1 850W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Modular Power Supply
My current motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3. This mobo only has sata 3gb/s slots. After watching some videos it seems like the 3gb/s will hold my ssd back instead of the 6gb/s. Is this true? If so what should I upgrade my mobo to for cheap? If not then I probably will not upgrade it until my actual next pc upgrade.
Also the reason I am getting the 850w psu is because I am getting it brand new for $70 instead of $140 on newegg.
