Upgrading GPU and PSU

December 26, 2012 9:45:19 PM

BUDGET RANGE: $150-$250

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Far Cry 3 or Crysis 3 -> Video Editing)

CURRENT SETUP:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...

ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
460W PSU
i7 950 @ 3.07 GHz
8GB Memory

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg or Amazon
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States


MONITOR RESOLUTION: looking to run everything in 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I figured I would need a new PSU and GPU, but I guess the bigger question would be if I can even get them to fit. The tower and motherboard are fairly old (mATX and mini tower), and I can barely fit my 5770 without obstruction. I really only wanted to get a new GPU or PSU, but if I'm looking at a whole new PC, I would probably have to wait until late of next year to be able to afford one. What would you all recommend?

If I were to build a new PC, would I need to upgrade my CPU as well, or is what i have now suffice?
