Hey all. I've been lurking on this site for years. I actually used some tools here to build my first computer years ago. I've always had great luck with this site. My curent issue and question is what to build and change. I've had the same gaming rig for about 2-3 years now and just finished taking care of some of those honey do items from the wife and I have some money laying around and I would like to put it into my computer setup. As far as budget for upgrading goes I have about 2k-3k but of course I'd rather save money then just blow it all on parts that I really don't need to change out. Below I will list my current setup. I'm just a normal gamer. League of Legends, Payday2, Omerta, Dota2 and some games that I usually run. Besides that I just watch netflix and things of that nature. I'm just not sure of where to put my money and what to upgrade? Monitors? Speakers? Headset? GPU? SDD? Cpu? Water cooling? Etc, etc. Below is my current rig. Nothing is tweaked or overclocked in any way.

I think that's pretty much everything that I have. It's running Microsoft Windows 7 Home premium or Ultimate. I will check as soon as I get home. Does anyone have any advice of where I should start? Thank you in advance.

Nice build! Its probably holding up alright as well. As for upgrades, I think GPU would be my first upgrade. Getting a pair of 760s for $500 could be a good option. In SLI they outperform a titan! I think after that your CPU/MB should come next. The CPU is still quite good, but its the next weakest thing. Overall I don't think I could justify spending that much money on a rig that is already quite good! I hope this helps.
