Need help with PC Upgrade

Pitboz
  • 12 months ago

Hi!

I would like some help with upgrading my PC. I have tried playing Assassins Creed: Odyssey and while it was playable, I was getting a warning regarding RAM. So, I am thinking of upgrading my RAM first, however, while I am at it, can you tell me if I can do another (affordable) upgrade to get a couple more years out of it before I create a new rig?

You can find my specs below:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

CPU: AMD FX-4300, Vishera 32nm Technology

RAM: 8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz

Motherboard: ASRock 970M Pro3 (CPUSocket)

Graphics: T24E390 (1920x1080@59Hz) 2048MB ATI Radeon RX 460 Graphics (Gigabyte)

Storage: 74GB INTEL SS DSC2BW080A4 SATA Disk Device (SSD) 931GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 SATA Disk Device (SATA)

Thank you very much for all your help!

Pit

Thank you very much for replying so fast! :)

If I would like to just extend my RAM instead of buying two new ones? :/ Also, I'm from Greece and the only Radeon RX 580 that I can find is this Sapphire Radeon RX 580 4GB Pulse (11265-09). Would that work?

the pulse is also pretty solid, not a bad idea to go with it.

if you can find the model number of your ram i'd figure out where to buy identical ram, some ram might not be compatible (different timings/speeds) so it's best to get identical ram.
