need suggestions for a cpu, mobo, ram upgrade

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my systems older components, and I want to spend like 500-600 bucks.

I'd like either a quad or 6 core processor amd or Intel 16-32 gigs of ddr3 2000 or better, and a mobo that's got decent future proofing.

I've been off the scene for a while so I don't really know what's better these days so I just need some suggestions. Also I play most of the aaa titles they run ok but I know my system is bottle necked for sure. Thanks

You should look into Haswell. Only get the 4770k if you do more than gaming such as streaming/video editing/etc. Why 16-32GB of ram? Gaming wise, 8GB is the butterzone right now but I could see 16GB becoming more useful in the future.

I also run solidworks 2010 so more ram more better since I don't have a cad gpu. Although with my current setup it runs ok so I may stick with 16gigs if ram. . Thanks for the suggestions please keep em coming
