Thread: new cpu

  1. #1

    Exclamation new cpu

    Had trouble with cpu getting overheat though it's ok now. But my PC is 5+ years old so maybe its time for buying a new pc.

    - Budget ~50.
    - Keeping my GPU + HDD (asus gtx 1050ti, and 2x1TB hdd). Hopefully I can manage a brand new SSD?
    - Preferring Intel cpu but may go with AMD.
    - Gaming : I play some recent games occasionally in mid settings.
    ?? - Can't decide, should I keep my psu, corsair CX 500. That's 5 years old.

    Thanks in advanced.

    You couldn't fix the issue with your Core i5 3470?

    Temp is stable now. max 60-65 with occasional 70. Still having some issues. Like it BSODed 2-3 times in last two months (with some win7 slow/freeze followed by hard shut-down). So seems like its better to get a new setup.

    BSOD codes usually are a good indicator of the hardware that's failing. I recommend you dig up further on the BSOD, and diagnose the faulty part first before committing to a system upgrade.
