Dilemma between hardware.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I have some money to spent and I want your opinions.
I have around 1000 euros to spent on my pc.
I am mostly a gamer prefering MMOs and videos on my pc.

Im between a dilemma.
1) Buy GTX580, new PSU, Case and SSD

2) Buy 1155 mobo and 2600k cpu and an SSD

I have 2x hd5770 on my system but those amateurs drivers of AMD made me angry lately. I have oc my cpu to 3.9ghz. Which of the 2 option will give me more noticeable change in performance? new cpu and mobo or the new gtx580 with an ssd? (ofc the gtx580 will come with new PSU and case tower cause of its size and needs and thats why I cant have everything but only one of the 2 options aboce)

Your opinions will be appreciated.
Thanks.

2) Would probably be more sensible.

Pick option #2, sell the old parts and buy an SSD or a GTX580.

I thought buying the graphics card 1st case and psu and w8 for better 1155 mobos to come out (plus the fixed 1155 mobos are not out yet) and maybe the new AMD cpus (I dont have great expectations from them but still maybe its better to w8) or perhaps even w8 for the Ivy Bridge next year. Till then gtx580 will still be a powerfull card.

i believe your processor right now can benefit more from an upgrade than your graphic cards. "almost a gamer" which mean you're not going to care if crysis 2's maxed out setting doesn't work for you right... get the 2600k.

Do that, unless you want to hold onto your C2Q for a server build
