Hello

Input is welcome. I am just wondering is it worth adding these parts to my PC or going with a whole new LGA 1150 build?

Thankyou

well, your pc isn't that out of date.. that being said id upgrade. Your PSU cant handle a upgrade so if you wanted a new GPU you would need a new PSU. its kind of a hard call to make. what is your budget?

Then id just say build a new one. you can build a PC that plays games on ultra for about 1000. for 1500 you can build beast of a machine.


this is a example of a computer i recently bought for myself that uses high quality parts and is relatively cheap
