A long, long time ago someone put my PC together for me, but now I’m afraid it’s beginning to show signs of old age. The question is: Would it be smarter to just buy a whole new PC, or do you think I should just upgrade parts of the old one? I’m not really well versed in the world of computer parts, but from what I’ve gathered from some research I’d at least need a new graphics card and a new CPU.
the specs are as following:
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU: AMD FX-8150 - Zambezi 32nm Technology
RAM: 16,0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. SABERTOOTH 990FX (AM3r2)
Graphics: PLX2783H (1920x1080@60Hz) - 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (Gigabyte)
- 232GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250G SATA Disk Device (SATA (SSD)
- 931GB Western Digital WDC WD10 EALX-229BA1 SATA Disk Device (SATA )
I know the requirements for Dragonflight won’t be know for quite some time, but I hope to be able to play future WoW expansions on at least High resolution. I would be able to spend around €1000,- max. But if I could keep it around €750,- even better. I really only play WoW so it doesn’t have to be biggest and the best. My occasional spider solitaire moods don’t really require a supercomputer.
Was thinking about at least upgrading my CPU to the AMD ryzen 5 5600 but for the rest I just get lost in all the options. GeForce GTX 1050 seems like a affordable upgrade over my graphics card but I gather it’s probably best to spend a bit more on that so I don’t have this problem again for at least some years to come. But then again! Maybe you feel like the whole PC should take a trip to a senior home for computers.
Any advice would be helpfull, thank you in advance!
