Hellooooooo from the world of 2012....
So as the title indicates, I am looking to upgrade my rig as it is slowly getting slower and slower with more frequent freezes.
I am 90% sure it is the GPU getting old and blowing up so I think it is time to upgrade da rig or maybe if it is not worth it, begin planning new rig.
So here Is the current setup :
Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I72600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000
ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard (the one with a slight defect in the USB 3.0 system)
XFX Black Edition XPS-850W-BES 850W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
The question is it worth it to upgrade this rig or build a brand new one reusing a some parts like case, psu, ram, etc...
I am not adept enough with computer hardware to know which graphic card would work for my current motherboard or which one not to get due to motherboard bottlenecking.
If someone could give me a few suggestions or tips on what I should or could upgrade to, that would be a god send!
Budget is around $600 CAD or $1200 cad for new rig (could be convinced to do a bit more if it is worth the extra cash)
