With a couple of upcoming games in mind, I am thinking of upgrading my current gaming system. It is about 3 years old at this point. I am not having any problems with it, but some of the more taxing games I play are dragging my FPS down to 15-20 at times on high settings.
I would like to be able to run my games on fairly high settings and maintain FPS that go no lower than about 30.
My current specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
AMD FX-8320 processor
AMD R9-270x video card
8 GB RAM
1 TB HDD
232 GB SSD (on which OS is loaded)
Asus M5a99x motherboard
750 w. PSU
One game I am looking at has the following RECOMMENDED specs listed...
i7 4790 cpu @ 3.6 GHz
GeForce GTX 970 video card
8 GB RAM
Does anybody have any suggestions as to upgrades I could make to bring my current system as close to the above specs as possible? I would like to stick with AMD/Athlon components.
