Willing to upgrade... What should I upgrade first? What should I keep? All feedback helps!
I woulda tried to grab a 670= 660 ti on craigslist or something.
Same price- Better performance/
--------CPU is fine depending on the games you are planning on playing
I think you waste some money for cooler.You maybe should buy cheaper cooler and that money what you save get for better graphics card.Did you really need headphones for 100 dollars?If you need ok,but if not i suggest buy ssd.
Upgrading should be treated as a necessity rather than a trend you throw yourself and your money into.
If your PC is doing everything you want it do such as running your games/apps well, then don't upgrade.
If there's something that is not satisfying to you, then change it. It can range from your average GPU upgrade if the games you want to play don't run well at your desired resolution and settings to new case fans to improve temps/noise levels.
Upgrades are always situational and it's up to you to decide what the issues are when they arrive
Don't know much about AMD CPUs but the rest of the components look solid for a started build.
I'm guessing save for a GTXC 970, but I don't know how that CPU will fair up. Hopefully the AMD peeps will give you some advise!
the fx 6300 is a solid gaming cpu. Shouldnt bottle neck any gpus in his budget and gives him the performance he would need in games that utilize additional cores, for example battlefield 4.
FIRST thing is to manage those cables..the spaghetti monster is after my life
with your current cpu and gpu bundle, neither one is bottle necking the other, but, in the future you could upgrade them both, id suggest the fx-8350, and the EVGA gtx 970 4gb, when you can save up and buy them, the cpu first, then the GPU
also, if you havent already bought them, scrap the skull candy headphones and grab the Corsair HS40 3.5mm headset, its better quality sound and they are very comfortable to wear.
I should add a SSD. If you put Windows on the SSD, the software is MUCH faster already. If you put games on the SSD, (example battlefield 4) the maps are loaded faster as 20 sec instead of 1 minute.
Purchase an SSD to use as your primary boot drive, it will speed up your load times like mad. Put windows on the SSD and your key applications
Is the cable management just you or is there no room in the case because i'm thinking about getting that case and I like to have a very titey PC.
there is room but I don't recommend this case, air flow sucks, and there isn't a lot of room but enough if you don't have thick cables....
This case is awesome.
