Asus M5A78L-M LX : Phenom IIx2 : 4gb ram : PSU: OCZ 500w : nVidia GT440 : LG IPS234 : HDD: Samsung 1tb + W.D 1tb : Chrome : Win 10 pro (64) + Avast : Malwarebytes : Spybot ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi again,

I'm thinking of upgrading my kit. I reckon just a MB & CPU would be needed.
I may update the Graphics card at a later date.

Is the PSU big enough ?

My existing kit will only take 3gb out of 4gb memory. Is this down to the MB or CPU ?

If the MB is good enough, maybe just a better CPU, so I can use more memory.

I'm not a gamer, nor running massive number crunches, so don't need the very best of graphics.

This isn't urgent, but once it's in the head, it keeps going round.

All advice appreciated.

Baz
