Update hardware "new build"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Yo everybody.

 

I built my pc in 2015 and the setup is the following:

CPU: i5 4690k w/ CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO

MB: Asus Sabertooth z97 mk2

RAM: 2x 8gb 1600mhz DDR3

GPU: Asus Strix GTX980 4GB DDR5

I think this is the most important, my MB / RAM (ddr3) is outdated i guess.

 

I pretty much only use PC for gaming, the game is play the most is CS:GO/ GTA V ,although i stopped playing new games because i fear the pc is not going to run smooth.

 

So, can you guys advice me in which hardware I should switch? If so which models you recommend.

 

Thank you for your time ,

Thanks in advance.

 

Wilson.

Hold off on upgrading CPU till DDR5 releases. That way you'll skip a generation. Shouldn't be more than a year or so.

You didn't mention what you had storage wise, so I would recommend getting an NVME SSD. You can get 1TB drives for less than $100.

If you want, you could upgrade your GPU to a used 1080 or something for less than 300 dollars. A 1080ti could be had for around $430.

I got an Corsair Ssd force LS240gb + WD Blue 1Tb 64mb + 320gb Green 32mb.. i dont even use 40% of my space 😅 ... Is ssd still good?

If I am buying its going to be new, is it also "good" in today standards? 

 

Thanks for help.

Also. Even if ddr5 comes this year its going to be expensive because there will be low variety, and now coronavirus is just going to make it worse / delay it even more

I noticed you already had storage so I didn't add any extra. Just be sure to format it all for your new build. Your budget was pretty tough to keep under so I had to go a bit over so I apologise in advance for that.
