Thinking of updating my SIG RIG

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Been awhile since I have been on here. I have really enjoyed my rig so far, but I am looking to upgrade.

I have about 1k to spend......thinking of just going in on a new GPU. I think I am getting all out of the 580 I am going to get.

I don't plan on OCing or anything, and I just use the computer to play SWTOR, DOTA 2, MW3, etc.

Any advice appreciated.

I would look into GTX 780.

 

GTX Titan is the best GPU in the market but GTX 780 is close enough. And cost $300 cheaper.

 

Other than that no need to upgrade anything. You might get a sound card though. The new Sound Blaster Z or Zx could be great.

Yeah I thought about a sound card, too since I have just been using the on board one. I bought those nice speakers to watch movies, etc on. I find myself using my headset for the majority of the time, so never really made getting a sound card a priority.

Well I can tell you that having a soundcard makes a lot of difference both in games and music.

 

However I see that you have the Senheiser 360 PC and as far as I know it is a USB model. So the soundcard would be useless in that case. It can only benefit from your speakers.

 

Are you thinking of getting a GTX 780?

 

It will be a great improvement over 580.

 

We both have the same screen, and trying to achieve 120fps stable is a pain really. My Titan helps a lot and so will a GTX 780

Yeah bro that is exactly what I was thinking. Getting a 780 so I can get the most out of the screen. On games where I can actually see it, the 100+ FPS really makes a huge difference.

Stuck in Afghanistan for a few months, so delayed my upgrade. Still think just popping in a 780 is the best upgrade I can get?

Ah man sorry to hear that.

 

Well in Nvidia department 780 is perfect if you ask me, but AMD is releaseing 290x which is believed to be similar to Titan and costs like 780 but this has yet to be proven.
