What to upgrade first?

Hey everyone I want to upgrade my PC for the new upcoming games and so I was wondering what to upgrade first and I would be really happy if you could include links too, but be aware that I'm only 16 and my budged is low so I'll be probably buying everything my self and I hope that you will include something good but at reasonable price. Thank you

More about upgrade
  1. nothing.

    what vide card do you have?

    what monitor size/res?

    what games?

    what budget?
  2. Is this what you already own?
  3. It is well balanced as is so if you are upgrading maybe start with platform upgrade to LGA1150 Haswell. Or leave as is and if you have 64bit OS go to 8GB ram.
  4. you better find out your PSU brand+model first

    because it will be a must upgrade, in case you have a bad quality psu

    Maybe I did't have a link but my gpu is exactly as it is they dont make different royal kings 7850's http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/radeon-hd-7850-royalking.html
  12. 100 euro then just add a 120-128GB SSD for a snappier system, install the OS on it and your favorite game for faster load times.

    Okey but I dont think my cpu supports 64 bits and will the ssd really help?
  14. Best answer
    Your CPU does support 64bit instructions. SSD will give the system a faster feel. shortens boot time and loads all applications installed on it faster.
  15. you have enough gpu. no need for that.................... cpu, if you can find a true, faster quad core that fit's your particular board I would buy it................ after that, an SSD as suggested above. when set up properly they run great and make anything you do ( open/run ) much snappier.
