Looking to upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well i feel my current computer is lacking so im looking to upgrade. I am in need of your guys help on what i should get

This is my current build

-MoBo
> GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5 AM3

- Processor ----> AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BE

- Video Card (GPU) ---> SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6970 2GB Battlefield Bad Company 2 Edition )

- Memory ----> G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

- Hard drive ----> Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

- Power Supply ----> CORSAIR 750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified

- Case ----> Corsair 540



I have between 1500-2000$ dollars to spend. Need something i can stream games with at 1080p and still get great fps

This was what i was thinking of getting so far

i7 4770k
ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150
Corsair h100i
Maybe 16 gig of some corsair dominator platinum
Cant decide on the GPU (s)

Either 2 760s ( not sure which ones to get thats where i need your guys help if i was to go this route )

1 770 ( and another one in a couple months, if i go this route which is the best 770 out there?)

or just one 780 ( probably a classified )

what route do you think will be the best?

also open to all suggestions

Help me out guys and lead me in the right direction biggrin.gif

Firstly, I'd go Corsair Vengeance/Vengeance Pros in terms of RAM. The Dominator Platinums look good, but I'm not sure if the extra cost provides many tangible performance benefits.

Secondly, get the best single card you can at this point (the Classified 780) as it'll give you miles more headroom for upgrading, overclocking, everything.

You think the 4770k can handle streaming at 1080p and not bottleneck any of the games at all?

Guess i will probably end up going with the classified
