Hey I use my PC for Gaming, Streaming, and Recording videos. I am wondering what should i upgrade in my system in order to get more performance for the money I spend. Please list possible upgrades for the parts and pick which ones are priority. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/PHyTZL BTW: i have a BenQ RL2455HM 60hz monitor, CM Storm Quickfire TK Brown, Zowie FK2

CPU, motherboard, RAM, and storage is fine, but we gots ta talk about your power supply and GPU. 

 

First off, CX series are not meant to be in any build like this. They are made for home/office PCs with little power draw and the CX750 is the most explosive-prone one out there. The GPU is also really old and an R9 390/290 could give it a run for its money. I'd try to sell the old GPU for $100 (i think) and the CX750 for $45.

 

 
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 390 8GB PCS+ Video Card  ($314.98 @ Newegg) 
Total: $400.97
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Not for some people. Yes, he has a need, in my opinion. With a CPU like that, the GTX 760 just doesn't do it justice.
