What do I need to upgrade? Tags: Components Last response: February 10, 2013 11:58 PM in Components Share sociableturtle February 10, 2013 10:49:12 PM 4 things I would like to upgrade: -AMD FX 8320 Cooling Fan for overclocking and quietness (maybe water cooling?) -My HDD. it's 596gb now, which isn't enough. I would like more (like a 1tb or more) and then use my old for Recording. -My Graphics card. I am a moderate to high gamer. Would like to play on ultra/High. I have a 6770HD 1GB, but what do I need to play BF3 or Planetside 2 on ultra/high without any lag?(60fps) -Case. I have a Rosewill MidATX Challenger. But if I want to add more stuff into my build, I need a better management of my cables which the case doesn't provide. So, WHAT should I upgrade? I can spend $70-100 off the bat, but more stuff can be bought later. The cheaper the better guys, leave suggestions on what I should buy! More about : upgrade popatim February 10, 2013 11:21:38 PM I usually recommend upgrades be bought all at once. By waiting newer stuff will come out and either let you get what you want at a cheaper price or you get something newer/better at the current price. That being said the 212+/evo has stayed fairly constant in price so I would upgrade that first. Check to make sure it will fit in your case. kiezz February 10, 2013 11:22:45 PM The cpu cooler http://www.scan.co.uk/products/phanteks-cpu-performance... you can overclock like mad then, When you save up a good budget gpu is the hd7850 or hd7870 or if you have the cash a hd7970, Seagate and hitachi are good brands for hdd's Related resources Next Gen Proof - what do i need to upgrade - Forum Need help on what power supply to pick for this upgrade - Forum What do I need to upgrade? - Forum What do I need to upgrade first? - Forum Need advice on what to upgrade. - Forum Can't find your answer ?
