Thread: Upgrade advice
17-06-2014, 09:56 PM #1
Hello to everyone,
i was thinking to upgrade my pc and i want to ask advice.What i want is something that can endure in the time.
-CPU:i have a i5-3570,really don't know if need to be upgraded
-GPU:7870,i'm waiting the new 800 series
-SSD: i don't know.
-Monitor: i'm torn beetween the 144Hz Vs 1440p
Budget is not really a problem but i want to stay with only a gpu and one monitor. Thanks to everyone who can stop here to lend me an hand.

I have the same CPU and a similar GPU (GTX660TI) and I'm in no hurry to upgrade - though I'm strictly 1080P. Why do you WANT to upgrade?
Honestly, unless there's a particular game or application demanding that you upgrade then I'd hold off, because you know that the longer you wait the more prices will come down and speeds will go up.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/t/buil...cleType=review where they build systems for various budgets according to best price/performance and write the whole process up including benchmarks of the system. I tend to look there first before going off and pricing components.
As it says on the build your own page "Our editorial team builds, tests, and evaluates PC systems at varying costs, using the components that we think maximize value."

For example my CPU, the 3570 no K, with a new gpu, for example the next series 800 or for something with more data,the 780Ti or even a SLI of 780Ti,can cause bottleneck? It's better if i pass to a 3770K?
I can wait, but i will prefer make myself an idea of what need to be done, and i thought of asking advice to people who know better. What i want to try to reach is a build that can last at least 2-3 year playing everything at max settings, mods,other filter like ENB, at least at 1080p an 60FPS(or better 144) without problem.
