need help with build upgrade

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm looking at upgrading my system.
I'm looking at buying a new processor which means i will need a new mobo and ram.
Current PC specs are in my signature biggrin.gif

The only bottleneck in my system and the only thing that isn't pretty new is the CPU/MOBO so i'm looking to replace them with something new.
As i've been out of the whole PC hardware scene for a while now i'm not familiar with what's the lastest and what most people are buying these days.

Any help would be appreciated thumb.gif

Put that 930 at 4.0 and you shouldn't see any bottlenecks. But, if you're itching to upgrade then I'd go with a 3770k.
