would love to help you out but without a general budget layed out, don't wanna give you advice that's outside of your reach.


Let's just put a number of $500-$600 Cdn on this for the hell of it. When times comes I may have a bit more, depends on if I get the new job I've been interviewing for lol.

A GPU upgrade would net you the best performance increase, but since you're upgrading not even 2 generations apart your not going to see the greatest increase in performance.

Even the 770 GTX can't pull 60 FPS in some games at 1080p.

cpu/mobo and gpu will be your best bet. Should be pretty easy to get a decent cpu/mobo and a mid tier gfx card for about $500 to $600 depending on sales. I believe new processors, mobos, gpus and memory are going to be released this year. Intel is supposed to release the haswell-e chip and with that DDR4 memory is also supposed to be released. Then Nvidia is supposed to release the gtx 800 series. It would be in your best interest to wait a bit for those before upgrading.

I highly recommend a 780, or 780ti if you can afford it. And I also recommend the h80i CPU cooler, as I have one and love it.
#18BeerOnTapPosted 3/29/2014 2:44:00 PM
I say wait for the incoming 800 series. Grab an 880 and that'll set you for a while. Get the h80i now.

Wait a little longer. That system has plenty of life left in it. You can still runs games great on that thing.

You will not be disappointed if you get a 290 or 780, but you've waited this long already. Waiting another 6 months to a year isn't all that bad, and could save you a good amount of money.
