I'm looking to maximize the performance of my PC; from this I'm thinking of investing in an SSD, another 4GB of RAM, getting a new headset, a sound card and new mouse and keyboard. I'm also pondering selling my GPU and monitor in order to buy better ones.
I ordered this stuff right off the bat without much deliberation and evidently it shows. I'm willing to spend upwards of £300.
Hi mate yeah ermmm...from past experience don't spend too much on stuff you can live without. Don't spend money on a new headset , sound card or new mouse & keyboard unless they're breaking. With that money put it towards an SSD & another kit of GOOD ram. Also don't sell your GPU as you make a loss. Better to keep components than to sell , put more money on top to get better one.
I see you want to upgrade mouse/keyboard/headset but you will get more out of a GPU and SSD upgrade then if you went and got a complete Razer Keyboard/Mouse pack and a $100 headset.
Inside the computer is more important then outside. You can game with a 50c mouse and keyboard, but not a $50 GPU. SSD is optional. You could ditch the SSD in favor of a 7950/7970 and you will get even better performance out of that.
