I just built this computer about 6 months ago, and its my first build. I am using my 24" 720p HDTV 60hz as my monitor now. It gets annoying switching back to watch tv, but I will use it exclusively as my monitor when I get back home. I play FPS and MOBA games like BF3, Smite, Blacklight Retribution, GW2 PVP (Maybe). Planning on playing Planetside 2 when it comes out also. I just want to know if I should be saving up to upgrade any component or not. What should I upgrade?

  1. At your resolution even something like a HD 7770 would be a big upgrade but if u are not in a hurry you could also await the GTX 660Ti and see how it shakes up the HD 7850-7950 price/performance spectrum?

    Should I get a dedicated "computer monitor" or stick with the tv?

    The upgrades are not limited to the case hardware. The monitor is in question also.
  3. That depends on how happy you are with your current display so your call ^^

    That would be hard to say because I've never played on a 1080p 120hz monitor.
