  1. Best answer
    Most modern games are GPU-intensive and multithreaded so the biggest improvement would probably be gained by getting a new GPU.
  2. I dont think you have a bottleneck. Your CPU wont bottleneck the 760. On the other hand you will see an increased in performance going with an intel chip, i5 or greater.

    No need for a new CPU, his could easily match the GTX 780 in most games since CPU-intensive games are usually heavily multithreaded.

    to make my preformance in games better should i sli another GPU or should i just get a new GPU alltogether and not use the old one?
  5. Try to sell your old GPU and buy a new one; Your PSU doesn't have the adequate connectors for SLIing two of those cards

    Care to explain why you unselected the best answer? (Just noticed that) :??:
  7. I can see no reason for that either. If the OP in a thread chooses a best Answer, no-one should overarch that decision. I'm reinstating it and I don't expect to have to come back in and do it again.
  8. sorry, didn't notice that i did that.

    It wasn't you, it was cabudinen. The problem was that only the OP (you) has the right to (un)select the solution in most cases, that's why I found it so odd that someone else would unselect it.

    Thanks for fixing it though :)
