I am new to building computers and i just recently put together my 2nd rig. I have an extra 600-700 dollars to put into it next month, where would you spend it to see the biggest performance gain? I'm a hardcore gamer, however i use a few other programs as well.
Also a side note, i am playing on 3 23' monitors using eyefinity.
Part of me wants to make the switch to i7 2600k since the bulldozer flopped. However I just dont know if going from 1090tx6 to i7 2600k will make a big difference. It does seem however that my GPU's are being held back by the CPU.
AMD 1090T Phenom II x6
AMD 6950 x 2
Vengence 8gb of ram
2 TB HDD
ASUS EVO MB
850w Black widow PSU
again i'm a noob but thank you so much for understanding my illiterate and incorrect understanding of computers!
a good PSU is the single most important thing in a computer. Without that, all the other hardware could be damaged or perform with glitches. While you technically have enough juice in there already, i would recommend you change that over while you have the budget too.
