Unsure as to how to update my pc.

Post #1 by tbritten91 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 9:34 pm

Hey guys,

I was looking to upgrade my pc to improve the gaming quality, I don't really know what I want to go for but I don't exactly have the budget to be spending 1000's if you get me.

Here's my current spec and maybe you could give me some advice on where to go or what to improve?

Cpu: i5 4460 3.20GHz
Gpu: Nvidia GeForce GTX 950
Memory: 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
650 V corsair power supply
1TB hdd

Cheers in advance!

Upgrading the graphics will help alot. A 1060 GTX or if you have a little more, in the way of cash flow a 1070 GTX. Sticking in another 8GB ram would be a good idea,and a SSD drive for loading up windows,and your fav games up fast.

Yep upgrade that GPU first, then RAM and then your pc should tackle the latest games nicely, what resolution are you at? 1080p?
