Upgrading my 5 year old system
N.E.A posted a topic in System BuildsHi All, I am thinking about giving my PC an upgrade. I discussed which SSD to get in another topic and I'm pretty much settled on one of two options will pick one of them later this week. Now, I'm thinking either to upgrade my GPU possibly get GTX 960, GTX 970 or maybe the GTX 1070 or getting a new CPU - Board - RAM I know the difference between both upgrade options. One will boost my graphic experience. The other will boost my overall experience but the graphics department will not experience that much of a change. I want your opinion on which path shall I choose. Currently, I casually game every once in a while. I mostly play Hearthstone and sometimes Starcraft 2. And occasionally Assassins creed, Blacklight. I did not experience any significant lag with my current machine but it sometimes happens. So, which path shall I choose? For the GPUs, I want to get GTX 970 or 1070 when its released but I don't want to pay more than 280$ (after shipping and import fees) in a GPU for a system that will not be handling a ton of games like I used to do. So with the current prices, the GTX 960 sounds the appropriate choice. However, I want to know will it perform well on a big 42 - 50 Inch TV at 1920x1080? Or shall I try and find a cheaper GTX 970? My current card, the GTX 275 is doing very well on my 20 inch screen with 1600x900 res. But I will get either a 27 inch screen with 1920x1080 and a TV for movies..etc with the same res. Or probably will skip the monitor, and get a 50 inch TV. Let me know what you guys think of which path shall I choose and if you have any recommendations as where to find a good deal for the GTX 970?
