Default Re: Help with computer parts.

I just tried to overlock then, and the game crashed, came up with a browny yellow screen, i had it close to max.
high performance gpu clock settings are 850 mhz, it can go up to 960 mhz
and high performance memory clock settings are 1200 mhz atm and it can go up to 1445 mhz
where should i put them?

never crank the sliders to the max.
Try 910 on the core clock and 1300 on the memory clock.

If you really want to upgrade something you should upgrade the CPU to something like a amd phenom 2.
Is this your motherboard: MSI-MS7641

If so you have a wide range of good performing CPU's you can choose form

i want to see what socket it has.
Download CPU-ID
In the CPU tap you will find "package". What does that say?

How much is it? What kind of budget do you have?

You could check out some of these: FX Series Barebones at TigerDirect.com

That should be socket 940 if it's Am3. Download and run Speccy, it's a good sys info program.

To show you where you're at, an Intel Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge Celeron CPU will outperform your system and that's the bottom tier CPUs from Intel. I think you're better off building a new system.

Here's the actual specs from MSI MSI Australia ? Motherboard - 760GM-P23 (FX).

I'd suggest a new system and Jmacavali linked a kit but unfortunately Tigerdirect doesn't ship to Australia. Have a look at some of these prebuilt systems that are customisable Custom Computer Systems (Servers & Desktop PCs) Australia | Techbuy Australia.
