  • Opinions on upgrades?

    Hey, Im new to the forums here and I'm looking to maybe get some upgrades for my computer since its been a few years now. Just wondering if there are some things that would be worth while to switch or should switch. Right now I'm running...
    - Intel core i5-2500k
    - Asus P8P67 Pro
    - Asus geforce Gtx 460
    - 2x 4gb ddr3 pc3-12800 ram

    I am tempted to buy a gtx 770, but not sure if its worth.
    Thanks in advance

    If you aren't already using a SSD, then this should be the #1 item for an upgrade IMHO.

      I would recommend getting something like a HD 7850 or even better

        Depends on your budget; eg can you only upgrade or can you look at something new?

        I agree an SSD sure helps. The i5 you could stick with for a while longer. And I'd be looking at probably 8GB RAM now. And yes have a look at a newer card - NVidia 5, 6 or 7 series.

        Also depends on what you want to do with it - office work, video editing, gaming? The configuration should be a bit different for each.
