What would you upgrade in my sig rig?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What would you upgrade if you had my PC?

I am debating between:

Another GTX 560 Ti / Bigger PSU
Sell my GTX 560 and get a GTX 580
4 More gigs of RAM
i7-2600k and sell my i5 (even though this is a great chip, got lucky with this (clocks at 5.0 stable 1.42v load)
Buy a 3rd 23.6" asus and eyefinity with a 32" in the middle and use my 5870
More cooling You guys serious? I have five (modded) 200mm case fans and five 120mm fans
Solid State Drive (I'm a gamer, I don't turn my PC off much
Other? Please suggest

Also, I'm trying to prepare for BF3 if that makes a difference

Eh. I would still vote for a SSD. With a 64GB version you can slap your OS and BF3 on there for faster loads. The 2600k won't do a thing for you in gaming. The extra 560 is nice, but not really worth it at your res IMHO.

Extra cooling only if you wanted to watercool lol.

As for the 5870 and eyefinity... I love it =)

Either the SSD or SLI. SSD will really cut your loading times, everything else feels snappy as well.

No. BF3 dev clearly stated that the machine that will max BF3 hasn't been released yet no more than a few weeks ago IIRC. And they were running a 580. At 1080 I doubt you will max it with two 560's either. That being said, turn down the AA/etc and you will be fine with one IMHO.

If you want to prepare yourself for Battlefield 3 then probably SLI the 560.

If you want faster loading time then get an SSD. I recently just picked up a Corsair Performance 3 120gb and amazed at its speed.. Using it as a secondary, dedicated game drive and my games load in a blink of an eye..
