Bottle Neck.

Hi there ...

I'm new to building PC's and I would like to know what to upgrade in my PC. Long story short, my dad brought home a old ish gaming PC for me to start of with (From his work). 

 

The specs are:

GPU - 1050ti 

RAM - 16gb ddr3 g skill 

CPU - i7-3700k

MOTHERBOARD - Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H

POWER - 550W Silver

 

I have about $900 to spend. What should I upgrade? Could u put names of the product (Eg; upgrade your cpu to an i5).

Thanks really appreciate it ❤️

Interesting that you have a 3770K but an H77 motherboard. Are you sure it's not an i7-3770 without the K?

 

What country are you located in and what will your uses for the computer be? If gaming, what resolution/refresh rate?

If you want to get a new motherboard and upgrade your whole platform, grab a ryzen 5 2600 and a nice B450 board. After that and some ddr4 3000, you could sell your old motherboard, ram, cpu, and graphics card for a new one like a 1070

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I'm not to sure weather its an i7-3700k or i7-3700 sorry ... 

I'm living in NZ (New Zealand). My PC is used for gaming and my monitor in currently 60hz but my parents said they'd get me a 144hz 4ms 31.5 inch curved gaming monitor.

anything else you need to know I'm happy to answer

Is it 1080p or 1440p? 31" is pretty big lol. If it's 1080p, then I'd recommend a GTX 1070. If it's 1440p, then I'd go for a 1070 Ti or 1080. Also you should probably get a new PSU

If you go for something like this, it would probably be in the neighborhood of $1000, minus whatever you sell your current system for.

Do you suggest going smaller ? if its for gaming?

It's up to you and what you want, I just think that's really big, but it depends on what resolution it is.

Correcting my former statement, you could build something like https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Ktktq4 this for ~$850, depending on deals you can get. If you want to keep the system you have right now, you can just buy some parts like this https://pcpartpicker.com/list/FyQbZR. You can also upgrade to a GTX 1070 if you play harder games, but if you just play esports type games an RX 580 will be more than enough for 1080p 144Hz.

What does the used market look like for used graphics cards look like in New Zealand? That's the best way to get a good one for a decent budget like the 1070 I mentioned earlier.

If you get the build I linked, re use all your parts like storage, case, and PSU, then u have some extra money left over and should be able to find a decent price.

Well, it depends entirely on how you use it, and if there are any breakthroughs in the PC market. That's the reason future proofing isn't a real thing, it's kind of impossible to tell.
