What would you Upgrade in my system?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

My in laws will be visiting my brother in law in San Francisco and I might order a thing or two because things are like half price compared to Turkey,

 

However I really can not find anything to upgrade. Could you guys help

 

1-) I WILL SLI my system so please advice something else

 

2-) I know my Asus Vulcan is mediocre but its good enough for me and I wouldnt benefit upgrading to a better headset.

 

3-) Soundcard? I was thinking of picking up a top of the line Asus or Creative soundcard because of the compatibility issues I have with my XFI titanium and Win8. However in November 30, official WIN 8 drivers will be released for my soundcard and I will wait and see

 

Besides these what would you do?

To be honest your computer looks done to me. I would wait on the sound drivers. Gratz you have the most complete rig ive ever seen lol.

yeah right? Its killing me

 

I love my rig but the urge of upgrading is devilish

 

Even though of switching to a 2011 motherboard with 3930k but at the end the benefit would be very minimal and unncessary for me.

I'd pick up a Phanteks ph-tc14pe, and some nice peripherals. Or SLI it. Other than that, looks amazing.

Is that a CPU cooler? I am actually happy with my H100. Thought about H100i but it would serve me minimal. I am ordering a USB 3.0 HUB btw. Only peripherial I could think of.

Yup, beats the H100 IIRC. What about a mechanical keyboard, mouse etc?

I already have a mechanical keyboard which I truly love. Even in newegg its the highest rated mechanical keyboard.

 

I am currently thinking of getting a backlit one with a different switch so I can use whichever I want, whenever I want.


Black switches are nice but I am also thinking of a red switch one.

 

Also my mouse is suprisingly good. I love it so much and I can not think of switching to another wired mouse. But I am also thinking of a wireless one but there doesnt seem to be any amazing ones.

 

Logitech G700 seems nice maybe but Razer Mamba has mixed reviews so I am confused.
