Hello, i'm planning to upgrade my PC to run the latest games such as STARCRAFT II, but i'm not sure what needs to be upgraded after my graphics card. CPU, RAM, PSU, or motherboard?
For the graphics card I was thinking of the GTX 460(I haven't even checked if my motherboard or PSU supports it yet), HD4870, GTS 250 or HD4850. Are these good choices? Which would be the best for the price?
My budget for the graphics card is around 200 dollars.
Then after upgrading my graphics card I might need to upgrade my CPU or RAM but i'm not sure about this, so could anyone help me decide what to upgrade after my GPU?
If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it!
The CPU is really cheap and yes, the speed increase will affect the gaming potential very much.
I think this will be your last upgrade with this PC. Also buy a arctic silver 5 thermal compound(paste) to apply on your new CPU.
