What upgrades should i make to my PC? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Would it be worth getting haswell when it comes out, or should i wait a few years?
I just want this PC to always perform top of the line

yeah haswell will be worth it, also get a better display like a 120hz display with higher resolution and maybe another gpu if you really want to (hope this helps)

I just wanted a few opinions as to weather this computer really needs an upgrade, because I'm not going to put money into it if it doesn't.

What is the main use of the pc??

Only thing I would change is the CPU cooler. You could even do a custom loop and WC your 670 too. biggrin.gif

Your PC sounds pretty nice, i don't see why you need anything else.

Your PC is fine i would upgrade personal peripherals that will make a bigger difference, like getting a full mechanical keyboard if you don't have one, you can also get into audio, a good headphone with a amp will make you enjoy music like never before

Watercooling can be a thrilling investment. It also lasts between builds, you just might need new blocks depending on what you put under water. This opens up great opportunities for overclocking. You could probably run your 2600k at 5ghz.

A custom loop sounds fun, how much would it cost?

That's a very open question as my loop cost me £500. Yes, pounds, not just dollars. Depends on what you want to cool and the quality of the components.
