so I'm looking to upgrade something on my current rig(in the sig...don't worry stoner i've got you covered )
-Core 2 Quad Q9300 @3.2ghz(everyday) and 3.34Ghz(benchmarking) WC
-8GB Geil Evo One DDR2@ 890mhz CL5
-MSI NX8800GTX 768mb WC
-WD raptor(sys) and Segate 320gb(slave)
-Rosewell rt550 turbo series (but will be getting the kingwin 1000w lazer back as soon as we get some 24pin extensions)
-Windows 7 Ultimate x64
but I can only afford ONE upgrade
CPU/MoBo(i5 or i7)
GPU(probably would be a 4870 x2 or gtx 550ti)
SSD(still looking...probably a Vertex 3....either 1x 120gb or 2x64gb in raid 0 "to get more speed"..as I don't have sata III)
which one would be more worthwhile?
I play TDU2...and do medium-heavy photoshopping..
I know upgrading my GPU will give me better FPS in gaming..and photoshop uses it in openGL rendering
a SSD will shorten my loading time, speed up my OS and my photoshop speed(scratch disk)..
and upgrading my CPU/MOBO will help me use the above to their full potential...no bottlenecking
so what do you guys think?
edit: forgot budget..I will be getting around $120...but I can add more if it is CPU/MoBo
