hey guys, i hate to do this but i have to admit i know nothing about this stuff.. i understand software coding pretty well...but hardware i know about as much as a household cat.
i want to upgrade the cpu so i can work with 3d modeling more effectively.
AMD Athlon II X2 250 3.0ghz
4GB DDR 3
500GB hard drive
zotac geforce GTX 460 768M pcie video card
Silverstone HTPC case grandia
Psu is a rosewill 380 watt high efficiency model
this is the cpu i want to put in, it is compatible with my mobo (sweet...)
>> AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz Six-Core ($149.99)
but here is the problem... is my PsU enough to power this machine?? i read that the higher the ghz the more energy it will need, but the x6 has a lower ghz than the athlon.
if i would need to replace the PsU how much would it cost? replacing the case is not an option due to the size i like. i have around 200 bucks to play with on this, and i plan on buying from microcenter since there is no shipping cost. (not much i know.. but college doesn't pay itself..neither does food bills, mortgage, internet..etc lol)
