Suggestions?
post #2 of 5
My suggestion is you put more effort into the question?

Whats your current rig? what do you use your rig for? whats important to you? budget? Are you asking something in particular about your parts list? do you have any concerns about it?

Update to a gtx770. Should give decent improvement for gaming.

Other options to think about - SSD to improve overall system performance and a unlocked quad core CPU and unlocked z series mobo. Games are starting to benefit from quad core more and more.

What games are you playing ?

If you are playing games that require more than 2 cores, then your i3 may bottleneck your 660. I would suggest getting your cheapest i5 (doesnt have to be a K processor) seeing as you just have B75 mobo.

I wouldnt suggest upgrading motherboards to another socket. I would suggest upgrading your mobo to a Z77 motherboard if you decide to go with the unlocked "K" CPU. If not, then just stay with the one you have right now.
