Hey guys what's up I need some help upgrading my PC. I built it a couple years ago with my friend and now it has fallen behind everyone when it comes to performance. If you guys could help me figure this out within my budget that would be awesome.

Things that I am looking to upgrade/need:
-New GPU (Preferably Nvidia)
-New Mobo (Asus or Gigabyte)
-New RAM
-New CPU (Intel i7)
-Solid State Drive instead of Hard Drive
-I currently have an Antec Case

I have everything else other than that, those are the things I am looking to upgrade. My budget is $700-$900.

All help is appreciated!

If you want an i7, you're going to have to drop the video card down a notch... which for a gaming rig is something I don't recommend since CPU performance is not really that important. And depending on how good your power supply is, you should get a new one.
