Upgrade or New Build

 Share

I have an Asrock P67 PRO3-SE motherboard (this motherboard was bought like 6 months ago and is almost new, payed $70 for it)  with an i5-2310, 10 gb of ddr3 1333mhz (2x4gb,1x2gb), a gtx 750ti and an EVGA 600w 80plus psu. I want to know if its worth it to upgrade this computer to an i5 3570k or i7-3770k, and gtx 1060 , or if its better to build a new system with something like a Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600 and the gtx 1060 (I´m not considering RX580 because i use shadowplay a lot and a NVENC plugin for premiere). The psu would be the same as this PSU is like 1.5 months old and is pretty good for my budget.

Question is. ¿Is the platform change worth it? If i upgrade to one of the cpus mentioned before and the gtx 1060, i could keep my motherboard and ram. I would save like $120. For longevity and everything else, ¿is the platform change worth it?

New build. I wouldn't get an ivy bridge CPU at this point. Ryzen 5 2600 beats the crap out of even the 3770k.
