Hello, the question is when prices fall and can get better products (not latest release) for less money.
I guess when manufacturers release a new generation of hardware, lower prices of old products without being obsolete yet. Is it right?.
I want to know because I want to upgrade my system, at first I was going to buy a GTX630, but I think it is not worth it and it is best to update my computer (motherboard, cpu, memory, case, graphic card). With a budget of € 500 - $ 679, and I want to know which is the best time to do it.
Yeah, this is the big question everyone would like to know the answer. The answer is, there is always something better, faster, cheaper coming in 2 months. Only you can really decide when you need to just do it.
I agree with jitpublisher, I suggest a platform upgrade.
Looking at your specs I'm guessing your system is about 3 - 4 years old. If you choose to upgrade, do some shopping around; there are lots of great components at affordable prices. I just found this CPU+Mobo bundle at Newegg, take a look: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (this combo is ideal for gaming, but it should give you a good idea).
PSUs should run you about $60 to $70, and memory, about $60 to $80 (depending on the capacity and brand name).
By the way, check out PCPartPicker.com it's a great site for researching components, prices and compatibility.
Now i see how are lowing prices in graphics cards in my country.
May be to february the upgrade.
Warsam71, You recomend me a combo with AMD processor, its more cheap, but i read that intel work best to games because games dont use more of 4 cores, and without overclocking was best are choise, but are more expensives.
I have in my mind a i5 3570, but i ask again in february.
Aerocool V3x Advance Black Edition case, support gtx660, 760 & ati equivalents graphic cards?
Thanks by answers guys, this is a good place to learn.
