Mobo: MSI P55A-G55 (Socket 1156, PCIe 2.0 x16)
CPU: Intel i5 760 @ 2.80 GHz
GPU: 460 GTX (1 GB) in SLI
I believe my Power Supply is a Corsair that has about 500 - 600 Watts. I am almost certain I have 550.
Anyway, as the the title indicates, I want to upgrade my system. I do not want this to be a full-blown upgrade because I rather wait for the new technology (DDR4, PCIe 4 ..etc). I am willing to spend around $500. I know my rig is a little old, especially my Mobo, but I want to upgrade it enough where I can see major improvements.
I was thinking of just keeping my Mobo and upgrade my GPU to a 660 TI (MSI gaming edition). I am not sure about the CPU though.. Not sure if I should overclock or get an i7 ? I definitely want to avoid bottle necking.
Any help, or recommendations will be much appreciated, thanks!
you deffintally need a better graphics card Your power supply is GREAT! but yeah a new graphics card and a new motherboard
Thanks for the reply, Yeah I know my motherboard is quite old but the thing is.. if I were to upgrade it that means that i definitely need to buy a new CPU and maybe RAM? (not too sure). I would be spending more than $500. I rather work with what I have.. unless I am totally screwed.
