What should I upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Have about 500 to spend and I'm not sure what I should upgrade, last thing I bought was water cooling and that was a while ago, should I get compression fittings or should I sell my 580 and upgrade to the GTX 680 even though there is not much gain?

If I sell my 580 I will only have to spend around 100 to get the 680 and another 100 for water block. Should I just wait until Ivy Bridge or even the series after that?

Ram!! Its so cheap, and It will carry over to the new Ivy. Sell the 6gb you got and get at leasy 12gb or more.

The 680 would not be worth the gain. Wait and save. Go for some more ram!

Don't upgrade anything... take your GF out for a really nice time and have fun with that money instead.
