Hey, I had a fairly mid ranged computer made in june 2011 and was looking to upgrade to more current components. It's a gaming computer, so graphics and performance are important.
The current build (copied from cyberpower system invoice):
CPU: Intel® Core i5 2500 Quad Core 3.3GHz 6MB cache LGA1155 + HD Graphics
MEMORY: 4GB (2x2GB) PC10666 DDR3/1333mhz Dual Channel Memory
MOTHERBOARD: MSI P67A-C45 P67 DDR3 Intel LGA1155 DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, SATAIII USB3.0
OS: Microsoft® Windows® 7 Home Premium (64-bit Edition)
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 1GB 16X PCI Express (Major Brand Power by NVIDIA)
Brand new PSU: 600 Watt Corsair CXM Modular ATX/EPS
To increase the performance I know you need to up the graphics and cpu but I'm really not sure what they have to be compatible with, or even what is top end anymore. (Been out of the computer component loop for a while and the industry moves fast)
I was thinking of Intel i5 4670 quad core and Nvidia Geforce GTX750 TI 2GB. Is that high enough an upgrade to warrant the costs, would they be compatible with the rest of the components etc?
