Need help in upgrading

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, my sig build is up to date as to what I've got, but I'm starting to feel like my cpu is letting me down somewhat.
It's overclocked to 3.8Ghz which seems to me to be fairly average in today's tech.
Basically I've got about 600$ to play with (live in Australia)
I've been looking but am so far out of the loop that I have no idea where to turn, I do some ocing and mainly use the computer for farting around on the net and gaming, occasionaly streaming videos.
Ever changing.

Then you might want to upgrade the CPU, and you would have to upgrade the board too.
Hardware prices ins Aus suck sometimes, but you've got plenty options with $600 to spend, you probably wont even need to spent it all.

For $265 you can grab a 4th gen i5 4670k from PCCaseGear and then pick a board to go with it. You could even spend a bit more and grab an i7, but for gaming the i5 should serve just as well. You'll want a 'k' model cpu so you can overclock it too.
