Been running on my old am3 motherboard now for about 4 years, with a phenom II x6 1055t, and felt that with Fallout 4 just round the corner, it was a reasonable excuse to do an upgrade.
I'm looking at spending an ABSOLUTE maximum of about £400, but I'd prefer to spend less if possible. Especially since this is purely a gaming PC, it doesn't need to be complete high end stuff, just something that will run some of the future releases well (stuff like JC3, FO4, etc etc).
The other important specs of my PC are: Nvidia GTX570 XFX 650w PSU 1TB HDD 8GB RAM CoolerMaster Elite 430 ATX case.
I also have a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 evo fan sitting on my processor, so I'd definitely be open to the idea of overclocking for a bit more performance (though its not a huge concern, the fan was more bought cause its a damn sight quieter than a stock cooler!).
It'd be nice to get a recent performance boost from this, so if there's anything else you folk would suggest in a reasonable budget inclusion, please don't hesitate to. (That would probably be outside of the mentioned budget, as the one above is just about mobo and CPU).
Thanks in advance!
