Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So Upgrade the Cpu and Ram and mobo

Or the Gpu

Their are good arguments for both sides What do you think

 

I could sell gpu for about 200$ and upgrade OR sell the other 3 things and upgrade to Ryzen 5 (6 core model when it comes out) all 3 would sell for 200-300$

 

What do you think I should upgrade

Looking at this first consider.Do you need to upgrade.Open your favourite game and task manager and look at the usage.That's still a pretty ok build

If you are only gaming, just get a used 4790K for $250 from ebay and call it a day...

Especially If your buying off ebay.I wouldn't even call it a risk.It's more of a matter of time before your refundd comes and you can try another seller

Honestly, your specs are fine. Sure you might want to go for a 4790k if you want to hit higher framerates at 1080p, but unfortunately that non-Z mobo really holds you back. Basically, as it stands, I wouldn't bother changing a thing because you could spend $300 and get very little improvement.

Some can still return to where they got it from and it's then sold as open box, not just ebay.

Open Box

Looking for a bargain? Newegg's Open Box Store is the place to find them!

Open box items are previously-owned products that have been returned to Newegg.com. This store includes products from across our website, often including items such as laptops, LCD and plasma TVs, monitors and computer systems. Please bear in mind that due to the varying quality of testing, you are taking a risk when purchasing open box products.

Open box items carry a limited return policy and should be tested thoroughly when they are received. Be sure to read the open box return policy before you purchase one of these items.

Safest from what? One can easily abuse a gpu or cpu by overclocking to the max, and then say they don't want it, by returning it, within the return limit.

Why not a 4790 then?
