Something wrong with PC, messes up on games, a hardware issue.
Motherboard: ASUS M3n78-VM
Processor: AMD Phenom ™ 9850 Quad-core (4 CPUs), ~ 2.5 GHZ
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4870 x2
Memory Type (RAM): DDR2 (PC2-6400) 6 gigs.
(Windows 7, Gaming Computer).
Okay, so i know quite a bit about computers but not as much about hardware as i do about software. To save your time I’m not explaining the computer problem, just need help on getting the right parts for my trial and error plan. I intend to get the same graphics card, but would not mind a better processor/motherboard. It has to be compatible with AM2 socket. Also I’m buying from FRYS so has to be in stock there, once I know what’s wrong then I’m fine with ordering off amazon/newegg etc.
My motherboard is the smaller type so I can’t connect all my fans to it, though that’s not a big deal, just want to know if i can get something better than what i have but still be able to use it with my current processor (as i mainly wish to see which specific part needs to be replaced) but as I’m replacing everything besides my ram, i would also like to know what part would be even better for my gaming experience. So i probably need 2 lists here…first i want to replace the processor and see if thats what was messing everything up, if not then the motherboard, if not that then my graphics card. I have a feeling that it may even be more than one part…as i had this issue before and it only got worse in time (probably ruined my motherboard) so those of you who know your stuff please help me out, would very much appreciate it…don’t want to spend a lot of time in frys asking/ explaining to tech nerds, but if this isn’t solved soon then i probably will have to.
