    Don't ever let anyone tell you
    what you can't do, but always
    listen to what you can do.
     

    Computer specs

    I currently have:
    -[MOTHERBOARD]Asus P5N73-AM Motherboard - NVIDIA GeForce 7050, Socket 775, µATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID

    -[RAM]Centon Dual Channel 4096MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz Memory (2x2048MB)
    -[GRAPHICS CARD]EVGA 01G-P3-1371-AR GeForce GTX 460 Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, Mini HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11, Fermi;

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm thinking of upgrading to:

    -[MOTHERBOARD]G452-7976 ::GIGABYTE GA-H77M-D3H Motherboard - ATX, Intel H77 Express Chipset, DDR3, USB 3.0, RJ-45, HDMI, DVI-D, SATA 6Gb/s, AMD CrossFireX, RAID
    -[PROCESSOR]I69-3570K ::Intel Core i5-3570K BX806237i53570K Processor - Quad Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 3.40GHz (3.80GHz Max Turbo), Socket H2 (LGA1155), 95W, Fan, Unlocked, Retail
    -[RAM]P33-6301 :: Patriot Viper 3 Extreme Performance Black Mamba PV38G160C9K 8GB Memory Module Kit - DDR3, 1600MHz, 240 Pin, XMP 1.3, RoHS Compliant

    The upgrade will cost $587.96. Is the price decent for the improvements?

    Well, I wanna be ready for Crysis 3. And the system requirements are going to run my current specs to their limits most likely.

    I'd say the price-performance ratio is pretty good for what you're getting. Though, using Patriot's memory finder, this is their best suggested RAM for the motherboard you're looking at getting:

    Re: Computer specs

    I think just upgrading your RAM and Graphic Card will do the work.

    He can't really upgrade the RAM with his current motherboard; to do that he would realistically have to get DDR3, which isn't supported by his current Motherboard.

    Oh yeah, missed that part. Thanks for correcting me.

    At OT: I don't see any wrong with your current config....The MB, RAM status, Processor everything looks good...however you can upgrade graphic card.....

    Re: Computer specs

    I wasn't really wanting to OC my comp. I just want a gaming computer good enough to run the most graphic intesnsive games without turning down the settings while playing. (ex: Crysis 3 & Far Cry 3)

    You will be able to, without much effort. The 660 is an awesome card. What about the other parts? HDD, PSU, Case, cooling? You should have adequate case cooling if you want to keep those parts cold.
