Hi guys. I'm in the middle of saving up for a new upgrade and was hoping I could get some help as to which components I should start off with. Current system specs Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R CPU: Intel i7 950 (3.06 GHz) GPU: Gigabyte GTX580 Ram: 12GB Corsair Vengeance (1600mhz) HDD: 1TB WD SSD: Currently broken Case: HAF922 My upgrading thoughts Mobo: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming CPU: Intel i7-4770K (Haswell) GPU: EVGA SC GTX780
Ram: No upgrade HDD: No upgrade
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series (256GB) Case: No upgrade I won't be able to buy all upgrades at once, but I want to buy them in 3 stages. 1. Mobo+CPU 2. GPU 3. SSD The problem is that I'm not sure in which order I should get these upgrades. My current mobo does not support PCIE 3.0 for the GPU so I'm unsure if the upgrade will do any good - Also I'm wondering if the current CPU will be a bottleneck on the GPU. Which order would you recommend?
