Hey guys I am thinking of upgrading my pc and wanted some opininions on what I should upgrade to get the best performance out of my pc.


Firstly Here is What i have.


CPU--Amd A8 5600k

Motherboard---Asus A55-M

Ram---Gskill Ripjaw 8gb 1600

PSU--Corsair cx430

GPU--Xfx 6670

OS-- Windows 8 64bit


Would a R9 270 Gpu be something to look into for graphics? or would i not get the full potential out of it with this build?

What exactly are you wanting performance with?  Games?  Rendering?  The CPU in that PC can handle most games at reasonable rates, but isn't what I would consider a gaming CPU if you are wanting most graphics turned up.  Nothing wrong looking at the R9 270, it would be a cost-effective upgrade.  You will need to upgrade your power supply to be able to use that card.  I would suggest a 550W PSU.
