Way back in 2009, I was greatly assisted by neowin and built my first rig. A lot has happened since then, and now I would like to get up to speed by making a few key upgrades, my only question is though if I can hang on to my old cpu and mobo, upgrade the gpu, ram (and then power supply as well) will I see better performance, or inevitably, will the old CPU be a drain on my rig?
So If I were to hold on to this CPU
And this Mobo
And then upgrade my old GPU to this (havent decided, just a popular one for example)
and swap out the old ram for this
Do you guys see any problem with this plan of attack? Is the CPU too old to see a benifit from the upgrade of the other parts? Are there massive compadability issues I have overlooked?
Thank you so much for your time and assistance!
