Upgrading a decent pc

RecyclingBin
Go to solution Solved by Streetguru,

I don't exactly have a specific budget, but nothing too much so I'd say around 600ish bucks in Canadian? 

I'd get a 4k IPS free-sync display so you basically never have to buy another display again

My pc specs as of now is :http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/pFN7t6.

So during this christmas/boxing day, I planned on upgrading my computer a bit.

My idea as of now was to change my cpu to a i5 4460, change the graphics card to a 380x 4gb, and get a bigger case (clearly I don't have too much money to upgrade).

I was curious if that would be good, and if there would be better options.

Thanks to any help.

an i5 isn't going to give you too much more performance in games, and if you're still on a 1080p display the 370 will be fine for 1080p for a while

 

what's your upgrade budget?

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I just personally think that a 4k monitor is too much for me. I have a decent 1080p ips by benq, and I think it's good enough, and not to mention the price of a 4k monitor. Even my wallet cries from looking at the price lol

It's worth it for productivity, maybe just get a regular old free-sync display then, otherwise save for kaby lake/zen
