Hi all. I've got a little extra cash so I'm looking for your thoughts on what components I should upgrade first. Here's what I'm working with:
GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ Gigabyte Mobo
AMD FX-6100 with Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Samsung SSD 840 PRO (OS), Hitachi HDS723020BLA642 (Data)
16GB RAM (4x4GB G.SKILL DD3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL)
I'm thinking that the best way to spend about $400 would be to upgrade the CPU to an AMD FX-8350
and upgrade the video card to something like the mid-range GTX 760 that MPC recommends
. Do you think those upgrades would net the best performance increases? I use the machine for gaming and work; it gets a lot of use from a wide variety of applications. I appreciate any advice!
