Enivitation got a reaction from The Belgian Waffle in Which component should I upgrade?
Ok, when you start asking these kind of questions...
What is your budget? With her workload I would go for a i7-6700(or I7-6800). When you know how to overclock, might even go for the k version. But note, a cpu upgrade might go with a mobo upgrade, since socket is different than yours. I believe you run on a 1155, now we run a 1151. So keep that in mind.
Also, Adding 8gb of ddr3 ram is around 30eu atm, so I would do that anyway. That little money for a big boon.

This post has by far not enough details. Which resolution? Which DX version? Etc Etc.
Also, there are litterally 100's of reviews out there, written and in video. Just use google with your demands.

What is your budget? And do you plan on streaming etc? Because 16gb ram should be enough, but if you have the money....
PSU is way overkill. Go for 550/600 watts (even that is too much for you).
Next to that seems like a true high end build. Might want an normal HDD for storage. 500gb fills up really fast with games these days.

Totally underrated: Spec Ops: The Line
Insanely good story. Also Wolfenstein: The new order
Will tell you more when I think about it

Jup, it is. You don't expect it at all, but it is really good.

O wow... You just saved my ass. Since I might need server grade mobo that does not support ddr4, it might even cancel out the price benefits the xeon has. Hmmm Need to find out what mobos do work with the xeons.
EDIT: Ok, I just did some research. A Xeon requires a C232 chipset. There is only one mobo available in mini-itx size and C232 chipset. That board is 180 eu though. The H110 board I have now is 70eu. So the Xeon itself is cheaper, but the mobo makes is waaaayyy more expensive! Just added this, so if other people want to use this topic for their builds, they don't make the same mistake.
