re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


Help me pick my next upgrade.

So, i don't know what i want to do next. Currently i am running two HDDs at a total of 375GB. I was thinking about either getting a new SSD or upgrading my graphics card.

Currently i am running an i5-3750k @ 3.40ghz cpu with a Radeon HD 7700 gpu. Its powered by a 500w PSU.

I have gotten away from console gaming and tend to find myself playing a lot of games on my pc. For around $200 what would be my best upgrade for gaming wise? TIA

Yeah, i saw that. Plan on ordering on the 15th. Will the new card really boost the gaming for me? Or should i buy a new SSD instead. What exactly would a new ssd do?

Btw, thank god i have you guys. y'all have taught me a lot about PCs

I would be tempted to get an ssd especially since you are short on storage

Yeah, see that is what i thought too. But, besides storage what else does an SSD do? I have a external hard drive docking station, so i can always add some space if need be.

with your current graphics card, you should upgrade that first

I would get a 1TB HDD before I got an SSD. No need in getting another small drive.

Before all of that though I could get a better GPU.

You can get an HDD for $60

Changes your life. If you have storage options then go graphics first but an ssd should be around the corner for you

I will add on to that and say the CPU is more than fine. You have zero reason to upgrade that.
