Planning a $1500 dollar upgrade, when to buy?, the best to buy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My Specs now:

i5 3570k
Corsair H60
1TB HDD
500Gb HDD
120 Gb SSD
EVGA 660TI Superclocked Edition
650w 80 plus bronze PSU
Coolermaster elite 431 case
Gigabyte z77-d3h motherboard
kingston 4x2gb 1600mhz RAM

Desired Specs:
(Parts not yet released)
i7-5770k
Nvidia 800 series card (probably top of the line)
Definitely new case (Suggestions?)
16gb 1866mhz RAM
The rest the same unless I'm missing something

Should I buy all these parts at once?
When is the best time to buy?
Will intels 5000 series use 1150 socket?
Any tips when upgrading

You're asking questions about parts that do not exist, and no specifications are published.

Some general ideas, none of which are certain:

1. Broadwall i7-5770K won't be out until Q4 2014 or Q1 2015 from what I've seen. You have a long wait. The Broadwell releases they talked about for Q4 2013-Q1 2014 are mobile parts only. They most likely won't be Socket 1150, as Broadwell top CPU is probably going to be a DDR4 part and require a different chipset.

2. NVidia 880 or whatever the next generation top card hasn't been formally announced. Rumors have it that it will be out middle of 2014. No guess as to performance or price yet.

I wouldn't invest a lot of cash in RAM unless you need it. Your Kingston 8GB of DDR3-1600 will run in whatever current platform you buy now. Broadwell/SkyLake will require DDR4 for top performance, so whatever you get now is going out the window in a year or two.

If you need an upgrade, get it now and enjoy it. If you're always waiting for the next best thing, then wait. It's a personal decision, not something we decide for you.

. Broadwell will only work on motherboards with Intel 9 series chipsets as Intel made a number of changes with the power specifications for LGA1150 and moved some power components off the CPU and back to the motherboard

Its socket 1150 but you will need to buy a new motherboard to run it.

I would say buying a new case now is not a bad idea at all. If you put some money and get a real nice "big" one where you can fit any component with ease it's gonna be a nice investment in the long run.

And same as above I'd like to know the brand and model of your PSU. There as well it might be a wise purchase in case your PSU you have right now is not so great.

As for the 5770k you might be fed up waiting before it's even out but then again you already have a very good CPU (overclocking maybe ?).
