Where should I improve first? I have :

i5-2500K
8gb of ram
GTX 560 Ti
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (socket 1155)

Where I sould start? Maybe I should wait for the first slew of next-gen games to passed to start upgrading? If you need more informations, just ask. Any input is welcomed.

Just a GPU, and I'd wait a while to see how the consoles affect PC development if you're happy with your current performance in games.

You are already doing better than next-gen consoles, bra.

But yeah, if anything, you should upgrade the graphics card.

Hold off for now, maybe upgrade your GPU. Your 560 is already a little more powerful than an xbox one, with the ps4 being like a 570.

You could also get a nice cooler and overclock your CPU. Should get it close to 4.5 GHz no problem.

the 560ti cant run next gen games, it cant even run crysis 3 on ultra graphics

this is what i would do: buy the noctua nh-d14 and overclock your i5 to 5ghz, get 16gb ddr3 ram, and buy the 770gtx

Tried to fit that beast in my case and it didn't work, the ram is too close for it to fit. I got the nf-b9-1600 instead.
