What's the best upgrade I can do to my Pc?

No. I'd wait until AMD releases their new cards and get a fast single card solution then. In the mean time, an SSD is a nice upgrade.

I'm on the fence about the Ssd.
Because If i get It, I'd have no choice but to put my Os on it. and that'd require me to install everything from scratch...and I don't wanna do that just yet.

When does Amd release new cards?

Ya know what? scratch the 780.

I might just get two 760's for more power.

good idea?


I agree with the sentiment of scratching the 780. Is it a bad card? No. It is a good value for the money? No.

Two 760s in SLI is certainly a good performing setup for less money. I considered it myself, because I used to own a 760. It has less VRAM and memory bandwidth than the 780/Titan, but it's still pretty darn good. In the end though, I went with a single 770 (4GB version) and I will probably SLI a second one next year, because my 1440p monitor needed something pretty beefy to drive it, and I wanted to have 4GB of VRAM instead of 2GB for the future.

Actually, that is not the case. You can easily clone your HDD data over to the SSD and it'll be exactly the same as it is now. When you get a new motherboard is when you're really starting fresh and need to reinstall everything.

SSDs don't need to be ultra fast because you're mostly using it for your OS and small programs.
As for being faster than a 7200rpm... It's like comparing an old Pentium 4 to a modern intel quadcore.
SSD is the biggest upgrade for general computing you can possibly consider.

I would just need to clone my windows stuff right?
That itself just seems...complicated. Don't ask why it just seems like a pain in the ass if i wanted to switch over.

As for general computing...Well, I suppose I can go ahead and get a small SSd. like a 64gb. That seems like it'd be a good idea.

If you're getting an SSD I'd get at least 120GB so you can have your OS, programs that would benefit from the speed, and the games you play a lot. It's easy enough to move games around so you can move the ones you don't play off and put new ones on.

Other than that I'd wait for the new line of graphics cards and get the 7970 equivalent.

You could also get that monitor probably with that budget.

The HD 9000 series is scheduled to arrive next month.

Don't get the video card yet. The new AMD cards will arrive in mid October, but it will be revealed just a few more day, on the 25th of September. I suggest wait until then before you make a decision.
