Upgrade ..some more?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking into yet another upgrade. Need more input. I am on a solid debate on SLI the 580 and upgrading my RAM from 1600mhz to 2133mhz OR saving my money for something else, like the 2700k coming out? What upgrade would you guys do if you owned my rig?

--Thanks

Don't upgrade your RAM it is not worth the cost from 1600 to 2133- just leave it. I would upgrade to 580's in SLI. Your PSU is at the limit though if your overclocking.

I'd say grab another 580 or wait til AMD's new lineup is out

I just made the switch to intel due to AMD's new line up is ughh *shivers*. I do have a separate build but that's my wife's.

I didn't think the ram would make too much of a noticeable performance boost. Thanks for the tip on the PSU, I figured I might need a new one since I'm going to SLI and maintain my overclock... Hello 1200 watts

post #7 of 7
i would wait for the next gen AMD gpu's
out december so not long to wait.

I agree with everyone about RAM, its not worth it.

only upgrade the PSU if you plan to use 2 cards otherwise its more then enough.
