What should I upgrade 1st?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted here. I used to post all the time when I wanted tips on how to build my 1st machine, which parts to choose and what I wanted to do with my pc. 

 

Here's my Build:

System

  • CPU
    Intel core i7-4790
  • Motherboard
    Asus z97-c
  • RAM
    Kingston DDR3 HyperX Fury Red 2x8192MB 1866MHz
  • GPU
    Asus GeForce GTX 970 Strix
  • Case
    Cooler Master Master Case Pro 5
  • Storage
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB SATAIII
  • PSU
    Corsair cx600M
  • Display(s)
    Crucial bx100 120GB
  • Operating System
    Windows 10
     
    CPU cooler is the stock cooler (I was too lazy about this I know)
     
     
    So since my pc is about to make 3 years I feel that I should upgrade some parts. I don't know what to upgrade honestly. I still use my pc mainly for gaming, streaming, recording and editing. I don't know how much time it will take me to get all the parts because I'm still a student and I don't work yet but I don't what to go above 1000€. Can you guys give me any tips? I wanted to set up a second monitor because of my streams but I don't know if my GPU would handle it. 
     
    Thanks in advance for the help guys

1. get an SSD  just saw u got them listed as displays xD

2. upgrade the GPU (maybe wait for next gen)

Thanks for responding so quickly. One thing that's worrying my is my motherboard. I really don't think it's good. And since I've been out of the scene, I don't know how the sockets are doing. If 1150 is still being updated. Is another socket became the standard one. Really rusty about this subject

Sadly Intel refreshes thier motherboards/chipsets every year.. your MB is good but it will only fit CPUs up to the 5th Gen.

Just wait for the next gen I7 for now just upgrade the gpu if you really need to. the 970 has still some power in it.

Your PC is actually solid, I can really only recommend getting a new CPU cooler just to help your temps a little, something small like a Cryorig C7 or M9.

A larger SSD, i personaly run a 1Tb SSD and a 256Gb SSD, both Sata. No HDD's. Just so nice not having a noisy HDD and ofc fast load times for everything.

 

Other than that, if you want mroe frames in games, a newer GPU, BUT, GPU prices are still inflated so nows not the best time if you can wait, which with a 970, u can wait :)
