Upgrading Rig, what to prioritize? Tags: Homebuilt RAM CPUs Systems Product Last response: September 29, 2012 11:20 AM in Systems Share raichu September 29, 2012 5:16:45 AM Planning on upgrading my computer by the end of the year, but I'd like to know what I should get first. My current setup (the parts I'm planning on switching): CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 (stock @ 3.2GHz) Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M68M-S2P RAM: PNY Optima DDR2 (2x2GB @ 667MHz) GPU: EVGA GTX 560 2GB (non-TI) My future setup: CPU: Intel i5-3570k (planning to OC to 4.5GHz) Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V Pro RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 (2x4GB @ 1600MHz) GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB Would I benefit more from switching out my CPU, Mobo, and RAM first? Or would swapping to the 670 be a better choice? Thanks in advance!

But I would be more comfortable if I got the new CPU and RAM first. Especiially since your current one is only running at 667MHz. A bit of a side note: It's better to ask here again about parts when you're a bit closer to your estimated date of buying them. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
