More about upgrade
  1. well, the best thing you could do would be to get a R9 290x, or you could wait till november and get an 880.
  2. I wont get it till then so okay :) Anything Else?
  3. eh, if you have more money, you can get a new cpu/mobo, broadwell comes out later this year too :)
  4. What is your budget?
    You can really take two paths, nothing NEEDS to be upgraded, but there are two things that can be replaced.

    You can A) upgrade the graphics card to something like the 290x or 780ti, or maxwell 8xx series.
    B) Upgrade processor to something like the 4690k and a Z97 board.
  5. And the Haswell Extreme comes out in a month
  6. I wont go over 1500 an im a noob so which should i?
    Would this play on ultra/high
  7. that 8320 and 770 should run on very high-ultra.
  8. Best answer
    The current setup could run high-ultra, this is another build just under 1500, offers greater performance in both the CPU and GPU.
