Looking to upgrade my rig, will mostly be used for Arma 3

So I think it's finally time to upgrade my pc build. I am almost leaning to build a whole new rig and only keep 1 or 2 parts from my old rig, but do to a squeeze on income I will be doing this almost one part at a time till its complete using old ones in the mean time. Here is my current build.

Case:Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case http://

PSU:SILVERSTONE DA750 750W ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply http://

GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 http://

CPU-Z link http://

Monitor is a i-inc iH282 running at 1920 X 1200 with a BenQ FP202W Black 20.1" connected as well for multi-tasking.

HDD: are standard no SSD here..... yet


What I will ultimately want is something I can overclock, I was looking to upgrade to a i7 with a swiftech h220, I will be putting this into a new case also probably the Thermal Take level 10. I would also like to run 3 monitors at 1920 X 1200 but thats not required. This will be used for Arma 3 almost solely but I do sometimes play other FPS and RPG as well as an occasional RTS.

Basically what I want to know is what should I upgrade first? Should I get the new case first and move my rig into that before upgrading or can I get other things done before that in my current build.

  1. I think you should try a new video card first. maybe a 7970 if you plan on running 3 monitors? the card you have is a turd.
  2. My EVGA SC 2GB gtx 770 runs Arma at ultra/very high settings. When the game finally gets optimized the 770 will blow away arma
