I wanted to upgrade my pc for videogames
My actual pc:
Cpu: Intel Pentium Q2010 2.8
Graphic card: GTX 650 1gb
RAM: 12gb
Power Supply: 600w
Motherboard: Asus P8H61-M LX R2.0

I wanted to upgrade the Cpu for a Intel Core I5 3570K, and the graphics card for a GTX 760, but I only have the money for one. So I was wondering which one should I upgrade first? And, will my computer hold any of those?

Sorry for the bad english

To go to an i5 3570k, you should also get a z77 motherboard.

To get a gtx 760 you should also get a good quality graphics card eg Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M

Thanks for answering, but do I really need a z77 motherboard, or can i use the one I have?

You can use the 3570k on a H61 board, but you then couldn't overclock it as its made to do.
