I recently built a home gaming tower. NXZT Phantom; CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1045T (CoolerMaster Hyper 101 Cooling), RAM Corsair Vengeance DDR3 16G 1600, MB Sabertooth 990FX, GeForce GTX 460, CoolerMaster Silent Pro M 700W, HDD 1TB (Games & Programs), SSD 64G (OS).

I want to continue to upgrade, if anyone can give me any guidance on what would be the best next time for performance gain I would appreciate. And please explain why.
Thank you.

I honestly do not see a large jump on anything except upgrading your GPU to the newest generation. Else, you could go with a new intel cpu and motherboard.

Change the GPU to the new nVidia GTX 680.

The GPU is probably the only thing worth upgrading, however the GTX 460 despite being a couple years old is still a pretty darn good graphics card.


No reason to ditch the 1045T btw. I doubt you'd want to anyway.

Maybe get another GTX 460 for cheap and SLI it.

That wouldn't be a horrible idea. The sabertooth board will take 4 of em. Although you can only Sli two.

I put on a second GeForce GTX 460. The SLI is working out great thanks for the advice.
