OK hi guys first time posting on THIS forum but it's always a pleasure to join a new good community so i thank you all in advance for any help or advice that will be provided!
OK so im currently running a foxconn H61MD mo bo - heres a link (if this forum allows im sorry im in a super rush for this info because i am seeing some great deals on the components i need) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16...
also running an i3 3250 @ 3.5Ghz dual core with four threads
and a gtx 750ti with 2Gb of gddr5 vram
currently running six gigs of RAM but will soon be upgrading to 12 or 10 depinding on if this upgrade path works i may even get 16
I would like to upgrade to to an i7 2600k @3.4GHz with four cores and eight threads (i hear it overclocks great even on air)
also i would like to get a GTX 1050ti with 4Gb gddr5 Vram and dual fans
From the research i've done i believe the processor will work no problem because they are both sandy bridge LGA1155. Unless i'm missing something here?
and i don't see any problem with the graphics card besides that its a DirectX12 card and im running Windows 8.1 which i do not believe supports DX12 so will this work on my current OS? Will i be fine running DX11 on this card? Also, if i do upgrade my OS to 10 down the line will i still be able to play my DX11 games once i install DirectX12?
So main thing i have a problem with is im not sure if the i7 2600k will work because i found the compatibility list for CPUs for my mobo (here is the list http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%201155&model=H61MD&cputype=Intel ) The list clearly shows that the 2600k is not compatabile but the only reason im having hope that it might work is because the compatability list does not even include my current processor! If anyone could give me some insight as to why my current CPU (listed above) is not on the list but has been working great since day one about 3 years ago.
That's pretty much all the concerns i have, but if i am missing something please point it out to me and don't let me waste my money!! lol
Thanks in Advance
