  1. The cpu and ram. Go for an AMD FX or Intel i5 cpu with matching motherboard.
  2. 16GB ram is enough isn't it?

    But Intel I5 huh? Good shout

    Depends on your budget. If you have the money to spend , i would just keep the RAM and GPU and change everything else.
    If you are on tight budget, i would just change the PSU, since the A10 paired with R9 270X is already good enough for gaming
  4. Thanks! :) If I get a 8 core CPU will I need a cooler?

    Probably yes, since the stock AMD coolers are below average.
    Just so you know if you get AMD FX 8320/8350, you will need to change the motherboard. The A10 is using FM2+, which is not compatible with the AM3+ FX 8300 series
  6. That sucks!

    Yes, i know. I would suggest you not to rush, collect some money in the upcoming period, and in about 1 year time, make the changes. Your current build isn't a slouch, it can still play games with decent FPS.
  8. I get 65FPS on ultra settings on SKYRIM :) It was my first build :) Just wanted to treat it to a upgrade
