Looking to upgrade.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I've got a decent build but its just that, can't really max out plenty of modern games or anything, so I want to get a hold on a nother Mobo and Processor

I was looking trough newegg and found 3 offers that catched my attention, but I am not really an expert and there are a lot of technical language that I do not understand, so I turn to you guys in the hopes of receiving assistance biggrin.gif

I found this: i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz + ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87

This: i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz + ASRock Z87 Extreme6

And this: i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz + GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H

I was wondering which one is better between the two mobos that come with the i5, and if it is actually worth the extra money for the i7.

Besides I found this: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB
and : RAIDMAX Agusta ATX-605BT

Do you think that the case and RAM are good?
Thanks in advance biggrin.gif

I'd go option 1 for the mobo+CPU, but if the budget doesn't stretch, option 3.

RAM looks good.

I would NOT go for that case; any case that supports full-ATX boards and comes stock with an 80mm fan... no. As it's a similar aesthetic, go for a Coolermaster HAF series case, like this.
