I have $500 burning a hole in my pocket to upgrade my pc. I have been searching for weeks on what would be best but I have yet to find what I need. Below are my system specs. PLEASE HELP!
os: windows 7 x64
cpu: i7-920 oc'd to 3.2ghz socket 1366
gpu: 2ct. 285gtx oc in SLI
ram: 6GB 1333mhz oc'd to 1600mhz DDR3
motherboard: asus rampage II ROG Series
psu: antec 1000W power supply
cd&dvd: blu-ray player/burner & dvd player/burner
sound: 5.1 surround sound logitech (no need to upgrade this!)
case: antec 1200
Everything is cooled perfectly and I have no problems with noise issues.
What would give me the best bang for the buck... upgrading my CPU or GPU... or something else?
If you want better gaming performance, you will need to upgrade the GPUs. I don't think it would be a very practical upgrade, but two GTX 470s or 480s in SLI would be better than what you have. If you sell the GTX 285s on ebay, you could make $300-350. You could get two GTX 470s for $580 or two GTX 480s for around $850.
