Herro everyone! This is my first post on here so please tell me if somethings wrong :D . So anyway, I made a gaming desktop in late june and its been working great. But now days Im starting to make lets plays/gameplays and uploading them to youtube (mostly minecraft). I do get pretty laggy when i record even minecraft on low settings. I take very good care of my computer... LOL! Here are my specs:
CPU: Core i5 3330
GPU: GALAXY GTX 560 SE V2 PCI-E 768MB DDR5 192Bit (Im posting all the GPU specs because this is a Korean GALAXY graphics card, Ill explain more later)
Motherboard: ASUS P8B75-V
Allright, I know my CPU is kinda old but still very good. And my GPU is pretty old now and its only got 768 GDDR5 memory... And about the card being A Korean GALAXY card, what I mean is that you cant find it on the galaxy website in english, you gotta find it on the Korean website ( I got the card from a Korean shop in Korea ;P). Second of all you cant find it AT ALL on the nvidia website. You can only find GTX 560 SE, not the SE V2. So my question is which parts do I need to ugrade for great performance while recording (Dosent have to be on max settings)? Thabks for taking yout time to read :D

I think with recording, the CPU would be a better upgrade than a graphics card. maybe to an i7 or an FX 8350.

Best solution

the sandy and ivy bridge cpu are not outdated. the newer haswell are only 10-15 percent faster in stock speed. the ib cpu are better overclockers then the newer cpu. with your rig put in a faster gpu. if you can wait a few weeks nvidia dropping there newer maxwell gpus. this make there older 600/700 line drop in price (a bigger win for you). if amd gpu are better price look at the 280 line or the 7950/7970 cards.
