+ new power supply unit.
Hi yes new PSU as well. Do you have any recommendations? Not looking for anything extreme. Just using it to game, watch movies and browse.

Budget wise not too high as I'm heading to university soon....

Are there shops available that I can bring my old PC down for them to examine and also at the same time buy new parts and get them to install? Wouldn't mind paying a small fee it.

Hi, my budget would be below $600 for MOBO, CPU, Ram and PSU. Fine with either AMD or Intel, but my PC will be used mainly to game, browse and watch videos

A 650w Gold PSU will set you back by $150. Need to up budget as ram is expensive too.

Yea... I was thinking of holding back my upgrade till the new intel coffe lake comes out or just whack what's available now.

Ram prices now and back in 2012 are shocking

Just curious. In this case is it the Mobo up lorry? If so why do we need to change so much stuff? And even the RAM can't be reused alr ah?

B75 use DDR3, all new gen mobo since Skylake/Intel 6th Gen CPU uses DDR4. Only a handful of H110/B150 mobo feature DDR3. The rest all uses DDR4 and they are not backward compatible.

Unless TS buying another B75, then he can reuse his ram. Otherwise, for all new gen parts he have to change RAM as well as TS wanted to overhaul the main core components (CPU and mobo)

PSU beyond 4 years old is highly recommended to change as we wouldn't want an aged PSU to poof and take along all our other newer parts with it.

16gb (2x8gb) ddr4 ram is 260-300+ dollars now.
PSU is about 109++ for good ones (650W Superflower Leadex Silver)

That's more than half the budget gone and we haven't choose CPU+MOBO.

Sadly to say, I rather you buy a 2nd hand B75 mobo from carousell and use until you saved enough for good rig.

Alternatively, you can down the ram to 2x4gb or 1x8gb(around $150-180) and 80+ Bronze psu ($89 for EVGA BV-500).
But still your choice of good value cpu+mobo is very little still. You might wanna up the budget. Just suggesting.

Hi, I'm not in a big rush to upgrade as I'm busy with work right now. Think I can afford to wait till the next Intel CPU comes out.

Hi all,

My PC is finally dead. Now the monitor would not even light up despite the cpu turning on and running.

I believe that I can most of my old stuff, such as my GPU a GTX 1060, SSD & HDD, monitors and speakers.

I think what I need is a new CPU, Mobo and RAM?
wonder this problematic asrock b75 is wat component tat is failing so many boards?

googleitslol can u try:
1. take out ram sticks, use soft eraser to rub clean rams' golden contact regions

if so *lucky* able to boot to bios, try setting
2. in DRAM Config, set "MRC Fast Boot" to disabled
3. in Voltage Config, set "Dram Voltage" abit higher, eg if 1.500> 1.525
4. in Storage Config, set "SATA Aggressive Link Power Management" to disabled

Do y'all think the Sharkoon T28 MIDI ATX pc case is still usable or should it be changed out for a new one as well?
