How long do you think it'll take to save for Ivy?

Honestly, I'd go with the CPU, Mobo, cooler upgrade..

 

You'd see massive performance gains considering you play games/games that can use the newer hardware. Then get the SSD, you'll be golden IMO.

That's what I'm thinking right now. If you get just the CPU and mobo, but live with stock speeds for a while you'll be able to get the SSD faster too. Then after those two big performance leaps you can get a good cooler and squeeze a little more performance out of your system.

EDIT: Yeah, I would get Ivy first after seeing the time frame.

Personally, I would go with the CPU, mobo, cooler. A month and a half to get Ivy, then pick up a SSD on here for cheap and get all of it sooner. Vs getting the SSD next week and waiting 2 months to get the actual hardware you probably really need. :P

Personally, I see that as the most valuable option. I mean, yeah, SSDs are nice, but I would rather deal with slow loading times for a little bit longer and get more raw performance out of my rig.

Go for the parts that will increase your base performance the most first, then once you get the big stuff out of the way you get to worry about the little things (Like OCing and such).

EDIT: I think you meant CPU coolers instead of SSD's at the beginning. redface.gif

What? What post and sentence are you referring to exactly..? :P

 

Pretty sure I said to get the SSD last in all my posts.. However, I am lacking a bit of sleep, so yeah. Leave me alone! xD

The post kind of confuses me, I'm not sure if it's lack of sleep on my part either rolleyes.gif

Did you say that he should get the SSD first or the cooler first?
