Some of you might remember my old build, the Forerunner, from a year back. In case you don’t (it’s my current system), here’s what I’m working with.
CPU: Intel Pentium G3258
GPU: XFX Radeon R7 250X (1GB GDDR5)
RAM: G.Skill NS Series 8GB DDR3-1333
Motherboard: ASRock H81M-DGS R2.0
HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda
Power Supply: Corsair CX430
Case: Rosewill FBM-01
This year, I’ve chosen to move to PC permanently and I am upgrading my specs in order to hit Ultra at the newest AAA titles at 60FPS or more. Here’s what I’m looking at. (italized have already been bought for me as gifts, cannot be changed)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K
CPU Cooler: Corsair H50
GPU: RX 480/GTX 1060
RAM: G.Skill NS Series 8GB DDR3-1333 (reusing)
Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Anniversary
HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda (reusing)
Power Supply: EVGA Supernova G2 550W
As you can see, I am clearly undecided as to what upgrades to buy for my system. I am undecided between a GTX 1060 and an RX 480, and also as to what model to buy. I also need to decide which case to buy (I really want a windowed one) and whether I can afford an SSD or extra RAM. All of the upgrades will most likely need to stay under $350, but that’s subject to change.
If you guys could help me, I’d really appreciate it.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
