I'm thinking of upgrading my MOBO to get an AMD FX-8350 and upgrading my GPU further down the road. Is this a worthwhile upgrade guys?
i went from 1100t to a 3770k and went from 6950 2gb to a 7870 tahiti le and overclocked the piss out of it up to passing 7950 levels lol. the processor upgrade was good, but the video card upgrade has been whats really pleased me
I enjoy my 3770k but i think the 8350 is a great choice with a good fx990 board. so save the money that i didnt and get that 8350! overclock! and enjoy compute performance of almost a stock 3770k and invest in a 7950 and overclock that! itll be a huge upgrade!
order of upgrade id say though should be
2. ssd (if you havent switched yet your in for a treat lol)
3. video card (the 6950 is still a very capable card so this is ranked last in my eyes, but the 7000 series is a good boost after overclocking
hope that helps
go AMD lol (i run intel but still love the red team
