I'm planning an upgrade on my PC and am very grateful for any opinions on improving the build.
Here're the specs of my current PC: I5-2500K CPU, Asus P8-Z68 v-pro GEN3 Motherboard, 8GB 1600mhz RAM, Gigabyte GTX770, Crucial M4 120GB SSD / 1TB WD Caviar Black, Corsair 850W PSU, Antec 902v3 case.
Planned usage is light-medium gaming (MMORPGs and games such as Portal), graphic design and some running of virtual machines for development. Based in the UK, I wouldn't want to spend more than about £800 and would like a decent spec'd machine to last a few years. Running on 2x1080P screens at the moment and have all other peripherals / licenses.
I'm thinking the GPU, PSU, case, and secondary HD are all fine. For CPU I'm thinking I7-5820K and SSD is a Samsung 850 PRO, but any advice welcome. Looking at something in the 2300MHZ speed range (16GB). I was looking at the H80i as an aftermarket cooler.
I liked the Gigabyte X99-UD4 motherboard, but welcome any suggestions. The better motherboards in the range are all E-ATX won't fit in my case, so is it worth upgrading my case to get one?
I don't know if these are the best areas to improve... Any advice welcome!
