Hi Guys,

 

I was thinking about upgrading my computer for a while now and today my graphics card (Geforce gtx 560TI) broke down, so i finally got a real reason.

Now the big question where to start and what to keep using...

 

System specs right now:

Geforce gtx 560 TI (broken)

Motherboard Z87 G43

Intel i5-4670K

Kingston SSD 60gb for Windows and some HDD 4TB

8GB DDR3 SDRAM Kingston KHX1600C)D3/GX

Power supply: LC6550GP2

 

What do you suggest?

Goal would be to play recent games on reasonable settings ;)

 

Have a great weekend!

Everything (except GPU of course) is OK except PSU. LC power is not good quality.

 

Your budget is? You can buy parts from what shop/country?

Hey,

Thanks for your reply.

 

I´m from Germany, so I can basically buy from everywhere i guess...budget is variable, let´s say i want to keep it reasonable (<350€) and have a setup which will be able to play upcoming games (let´s say the new battlefield) for the next 2 years on medium/high settings.

For $350 it's upgrade, not new system. Good quality PSU is a must. I would also add 8 GB more memory (50-60 euros).

 

Right now GPU prices are falling fast so probably in less than a month you could grab good deal for GPU.

 

So, RAM could be https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/8GB-G-Skill-Value-DDR3-1600-DIMM-CL11-Single_818863.html

 

PSU could be https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/520-Watt-Seasonic-S12II-Bronze-Non-Modular-80--Bronze_640838.html

 

GPU, well, after prices fall down, look for good deals. I expect you can get card like RX580 for around 230 euros quite soon.

 

Adding SSD is also not bad idea. Like https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/500GB-Crucial-MX500-2-5Zoll--6-4cm--SATA-6Gb-s-3D-NAND-TLC--CT500MX500S_1222727.html
