Recommendations to build a Gaming PC
  03-22-2019, 07:04 PM
So my current Gaming PC is giving me a lot of problems to play the most recent games, and I figured out I need an upgrade,

I use an old AMD Phenom quad core, ATI Radeon R9, 32 GB Kingston DDR3 modules. I'm hoping I can build something good around this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You are highly outdated. That AMD cpu is old using too much power for bad performance now days. Nice quantity of ram but it's again old DDR3 type which you can't use in any newer builds. DDR4 is standard today, and DDR5 is just around the corner promising twice the speed of DDR4. Also your graphics card is outdated for high FPS or 1440 gaming let's not even go into 4k.

So I guess you will need to replace everything by buying another computer.
