Get an i7-3770K


That's a useless upgrade.

Ram: 16gb g. skill ripjaw (ddr3 1600)


oh my god

oh my god

thats overkill


Given that lots of games can fit on an 8-12GB RAM drive thereby significantly increasing load times even over SSDs 16GB isn't overkill. Of course if you go the RAM drive route 16GB is actually more of a bare minimum.

Hyperthreading is pretty much worthless for gaming. Even games that use more than 4 cores don't really benefit from it. And since we don't have any Watch Dogs benchmarks, there no reason to believe that it will be any different. For gaming, an i7 is a waste of money.

So a ssd and os upgrade not worth it?

Ant tech upgrades I should get to add to my rig

I think upgrading windows is more of a personal preference or not.

I have 8.1 and after the intial learning curve, I do like it a lot better then windows vista/7.

The SSD is definatly worth it for your OS and a game or two.

I also think ATI cards are rubbish, but I would probably wait till the nividia 8 series before upgrading.

Well my ssd currently has my os on it and updates and everything has made it down to 1gb.

That's why I wanted to get a new ssd and os.
