More talk of an upgrade that i'll might actually do


#1

Probably my 1000000000th post on this but afte anthem nearly burnt out my pc i’m looking in to this more, but coming at it slightly differently.

Current PC:

  • CPU: I5 2500k 3.30GHz
  • Fan * Corsair A70 High-Performance Dual Fan
  • Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Rev 3
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance16GB DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz
  • GFX : ASUS GTX970 4gb
  • PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700w Silent SLI Certified Modular Power Supply
  • Case: Fractal Design Core 3000 Midi Tower Case
  • HDDs: 120gb ssd (os) 1tb x 2 hdds 960GB ssd

Thinking about just upgrading the MB, CPU and RAM to something that can handle modern games but without costing me a small fortune. So what would be cheap ideas that I could change too but keeping everything else?
