  1. This doesn’t have anything to do with these PC builds I built the same exact PC that you did with the alien alpha console and having some trouble with it. I tried to use the geforce gxt 970 and gtx 670 gpu and it keeps saying I need the bigger athlon processor it wont optimize at all its just using the am1b-m graphics please if you can help

  2. Yes all the drivers well I think, I went to geforce experience and the website for both of those gpus downloads and tried my old 560 gtx everything has checkmarks in the game optimization spot but the CPU area it says I need and FX,phenom2,x4,athlon2cpu or higher
