What To Upgrade Next? Tips/Hints/Ect..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Current rig is sig rig. Any input on what you think I should upgrade next?

Please be descriptive, not just "new cpu dood"

Edit: I don't have a free PCI slot since my GeForce 590 is blocking one and the other is being taken by my Wireless PCI Adapter otherwise I would already have a HT Omega Claro Halo.

I always assumed PCI Wireless Adapters were better than USB Wireless Adapters. Know of a good USB Wireless adapter with 300mb/s speed? I do a lot of file sharing on my network with other computers. >_<"

Something thats 300mb up/down not 150/300 or 300/150

You could definitely look into a better monitor. Your rig is pretty powerful as is, so that's the only thing I can think of. You could look into a bigger/faster SSD, but that probably wouldn't be worth it as much.

Maybe try looking for a good 27" monitor? The difference between 22" and 27" is massive. If you're not into bigger monitors you could always get a higher quality 22-23" or just another 22" for dual-screen setup.

If not monitor, maybe some better peripherals? Better mouse, keyboard, headset, speakers, mousepad? All important stuff that a lot of people don't mention in their builds.
