Help in ugrading which part

Hi. I recently got a Palit GTX 1070 JetStream but I currently have a 500gb hdd and a 1366x768 resolution monitor. Can you help me what to upgrade first?

 

A bigger hdd or a 1080p monitor?

 

Im on a student budget build and will take some time to upgrade especially a 144hz monitor thats why I only put 1080p monitor here. On the other side, I have a small storage device. So please help me

 

Note: My 500gb hdd is where everything is (os, files, psd, illustrator and premiere files, games, etc)

SSD prices are quite good now so I would just buy the SSD now

You want cringe?

Spoiler

Ok! Here we go:
i7 3770 - it's not THAT bad
HP Mobo - here's where it gets even worse
6 Gb DDR3
GT 630 - yes, GT
case from the HP prebuilt
same as the PSU
LG 1360x768p - man, I want to cry
Drevo Blademaster Pro (Cherry MX Red) - I'm still waiting for my preorder:(
Logitech G305 - 90g ?
Logitech G533 - I love wireless stuff

I have a 480GB SSD and i got like 4-5 games that i play and that is rly enough. I would go with a 1080p 144Hz monitor. I've got a Acer KG1 KG251QFbmidpx. It was cheap and it is good IMO. 

 

Edit: you can also go with both. Get an Samsung 960 Evo 250GB for your windows. Its rly good and cheap atm

60Hz monitor & a cheap SSD?

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

If I buy a ssd here in Philippines, my 2.5k budget will be gone and its only a additional 250gb.. thats why I only opt for a 7200rpm hdd

maybe if you get a 144Hz monitor it is, but what if you didnt?

Depends what you want to do with your PC, I personally am not concerned about playing at 4K for now until I get a few more big upgrades like CPU, MOBO etc, I'd look at upgrading your storage if it were me, I've recently bought a new 2TB HDD and Samsung 860 EVO 500gb SSD, I only had 1TB HDD storage but I store so much stuff on my PC it was worth the massive upgrade, maybe not go to such an intense upgrade like I did but maybe at least look at getting an extra 1TB storage, especially if you game, as they seem to be getting bigger and bigger as well as big updates *cough* pubg *cough*

First rule of buying a GPU is budget for the monitor and buy together, unless your sticking at your current frame rate.

 

You could have got a very good GPU and 1080p monitor for not much more than the cost of the 1070.

 

Its an easy mistake to make. If I was you would be either saving for a 1400p monitor if my rig can handle that OR looking at a decent 1080p 144Hz monitor and an SSD.

Thabks for you info. But I just got the 1070 from a swap with my 1050ti + cash which is a good deal for me and the guy that I swapped cards with

Nice!

 

I wish I had friends like that, or friends I general.

 

I plan on seeing in the new year on CSGO...
