Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: February 16, 2012 4:53 AM in Systems Share weisnoobs February 15, 2012 1:15:13 PM Hi all im gunna be upgrading soon and i need advice here: Approximate Purchase Date: (Start of next month) Budget Range: (e.g.:R3000-R3500) System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Gaming) Parts Not Required: (Keyboard, mouse, ram, lcd, case, ) **Gigabyte odin 585w** Country: (e.g.:South Africa) Parts Preferences: by brand or type (Not sure) Overclocking: No SLI or Crossfire: No Monitor Resolution: ( 1920x1080) Additional Comments: (Im running a i5 650 @ 3.2ghz with a Geforce gtx550ti gfx card.) What i need help with is. I can either buy a new mobo and cpu (i5 2500k) or i can get a gtx560ti. Thnx for your time More about : upgrade advice Raiddinn February 15, 2012 4:07:51 PM I am worried the Gigabyte PSU wouldn't do well with a 560TI, so I would lean more toward the 2500k, but I honestly don't know if I would do either one. I guess just get the 560TI, or alternatively an HD 6950 which may be cheaper and performs the same and have some other money ready in case you have to get a new PSU at the same time. weisnoobs February 16, 2012 4:48:21 AM Thnx for ur help Related resources Upgrading to SLI soon , need advice ! - Forum Going to be upgrading soon and need some advice - Forum Need advice for my soon to be desktop - Forum Building my Gaming PC Soon Need Some Advice !
