  3. So, I have an i7 860
3 years ago#1
I'm running an i7 860 and a 560 Ti right now. What I'm wondering is whether I should upgrade the cpu or graphics card first. If the 860 will be ok for a while longer and not drag me down in newer, more demanding games then I will probably just go for a new graphics card around the $300 range.
I'm just not looking forward to having to buy both a new cpu and motherboard, so if I can put it off longer I will.

You will probably be just fine with a 770

The 860 is fine. Grab a 7970 for $300.

Thanks guys, I haven't been keeping up with hardware/game requirements lately so that's a relief. I'll look into those cards.
