I was wondering if I should upgrade my pc. I have an i-7 4770k, and 970, 16gb of ram, an Msi z97 gaming motherboard, 2tb of storage, cooler master aio, and a 750 watt power supply. I was thinking about upgrading to a 1070, or a 1080, but I dont know if I should just scrap my current pc and build a new one.

Why would you? Your PC can still run nearly everything at max setting.

Unless you start running into multiple games that you just cannot play or if you don't want to accept lower settings, don't bother upgrading.


If you don't have a SSD, you could just get that.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3600 / GPU: Radeon HD7970 GHz 3GB(upgrade pending) / RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4-3200
MOBO: MSI B450m Gaming Plus / NVME: Corsair MP510 240GB / Case: TT Core v21 / PSU: Seasonic 750W / OS: Win 10 Pro

If the cash is available, I'd keep the rest, and shove a 1070 in.  

PC - NZXT 340 Black, Intel i7 6700k, Noctua NH-U9S, 16GB Corsair DDR 4 2133mhz, Asus H170 Pro Gaming , Gigabyte 1080 OC Windforce, Samsung 860 250GB (OS) Samsung 850 Evo 250GB (Games) Samsung 840 Evo 500GB (games)


Mac - 1.4ghz i5, 4GB DDR3 1600mhz, Intel HD 5000.  x2


Endlessly wishing for a BBQ in space.

Get an SSD if you don't already have one. That would make the most noticeable performance boost for general use. A 1070 would be nice but not necessary. the CPU platform definitely won't need an upgrade for at least 2 years, and even then I imagine it'll still be relevant. (IMHO)

When in doubt, re-format.
