Hi Guys¡¡ I'm upgrading my gaming computer an my first thoughts were about buying a new GPU (Gtx 680 to be exact),
however seeing that the price in my country was really high a new idea came to my mind, maybe a whole new build
would be a better idea, of course, sacrificing that Brutal GPU And recycling some components

--My CURRENT build consists in:

Gigabyte EP43T - USB3 Mobo
Intel Q9400 2.66 Ghz CPU
8gb DDR3 1333Mhz Ram
AND GTX 680( if i decide to go for the GPU)

--If i Decide to go for the New Build(for some extra money)( sacrificing GTX 680)

Asus Maximus Iv Gene-z/gen3 Intel Z68 Lga 1155
Intel Core I5 2500K
8gb DDR3 Kingston (recycled)
Corsair Gaming edition 700w
Some $200 - $250 Video Card, maybe a 7850

What would be better talking about Gaming?
Sticking with my old CPU and Mobo? or Moving to a new gaming build at the price of The Gtx 680?

Hmm... your build isn't that bad. What kind of Power Supply do you have with your current build. You might have to upgrade to support a GTX 680.

I say keep your build, it's fine. That way, you can slowly upgrade your components and you have a 680 :)
