My motherboard just died and I need some kind of advice to have a functional computer again.
My Current Build:
PSU: Corsair TX650 W
GPU: MSI R9 270X Gaming Edition
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1055T 2.8 Ghz- OC'ed to 3.5 GHZ
CPU COOLER: Xigmatek Balder
RAM: 4GB 1600 MHZ DDR3 TeamGroup ELite
MotherBoard: Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 """"RIP""""
Storage: WD blue 1TB 7200 rpm+ SSD Evo 840 120 GB
With this build my main purpose was gaming, some virtualization and surfing the interwebs. Knowing this and knowing that I will buy a fairly decent laptop in September ( minimum 16 GB Ram DDR4, M.2 SSD,) for university (CS), I came up with 3 configurations for upgrading the current build with the objective to use the computer for gaming and virtualization for another 1-2 years.
To note that I intend to overclock the CPU and GPU.
With the max of 150-200 Euros to spend I came up with these:
1- New AM3 Motherboard + 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz ( Total=8 GB DDR3)
2- Pentium G4560+ A cheap Intel Motherboard+ 4GB DDR4 cheapest possible
3- Ryzen 3 1200+ A cheap B350 (because of OC) Motherboard+ 4 GB DDR4 cheapest possible
Now, I'm not sure what should I do because I will get a laptop in September and I would like to utilize some components of the current build because I think they are still good and would be a waste not using them but in the other end I don't want to spend a lot of money.
So what should I do ?
