My old computer was not enough to run newer games and so I took my Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Toxic video card, the CPU Cooler and my EVGA 430W PSU and I bought some second hand hardware. I upgraded from a dual core to the quad core Q6600 and overclocked it to 3.02GHz and it runs good with the ARCTIC cooler. I also upgraded the 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM so for newer games and programs and after some time I got a new 1TB WD blue HDD as upgrade after my old one did not work almost. The video card is delivering good fps and the rig can play actual games in good settings
