Make a upgrade

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about do a upgrade to my desktop, special CPU and Graphic card.

My actual system is this:

Motherboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3

Ram: 4 x 4Gb Crosair DDR3 1600MHZ 

CPU: Intel 2500k [email protected] 4,7Ghz

GPU: ATI Asus 5870 1Gb

Storage: SSD Samsung Evo 250Gb + Wester Digital Black 1Tb

CPU Coller: Corsair Hydro H60

PSU: Nox Apex 600W

 

I'm not looking for anything really expensive, but on my first search I look for a CPU Intel i7 3770k and a GPU R9 280.

I use this computer to surf on the web, watch online movies, play some games in ultra definition and play with photoshop.

All you need is a newer GPU, if you really want to.

 

The CPU and the rest I'd keep...

A new GPU will give you the performance boost because the rest of the system is fine for that.

 

I would however look into replacing the PSU as a quick search finds not many good things about that line of PSUs.  Not it's gonna blow bad, but bad efficiency and unable to actually deliver full rated output kind of stuff.

Season X750W is great, but EVGA 750W SuperNOVA G2 is also one of the best, and also can be found a lot cheaper.
