I had built a VM server a few years ago and put it to pasture last year. My main gaming PC took a dump, so I brought it out of retirement and moved my 750Ti to it and made it my main PC. Attached is a few CPU-Z pics. I can't afford a total new PC, so I want to upgrade this CPU and RAM on what I've got. Currently an FX-6300 Unlocked Edition @ 95w, with 32GB of apparently some craptastic RAM. Yes, I will be upgrading the 750Ti as well. If I am reading the compatibility lists right for my MSI board, I can put an FX-8300 @ 95w in there and be good. I don't know what to do with the RAM though, I want to stick with 16GB or 32GB, I just like having extra headroom.
