My Sister is Looking to upgrade...

#1true_onimusha1Posted 8/18/2013 8:20:06 AM
Hey guys, my sister has recently gotten into Skyrim on the PC and is now looking to upgrade from her ATi 4670 and Athlon x2. She said that her budget was around 400, but some older parts can be salvaged.

She won't be needing a PSU, case, Optical drive, hard drive, peripherals or a copy of windows.

Realistically, all she needs is a CPU, Mobo, RAM and GPU but with that budget, I'm really at a loose end with what to recommend!

Thanks!

Is she cute?

Something like:-

A H61 motherboard (with Ivy Bridge support + USB3) - 40
i5-3470 - 150
2 x 4GB DDR3 - 50
GTX 670 - 170

No CPU overclocking, but that motherboard/CPU combo. does keep the price down.
