Hello. I've had my current build for a few years now and I've been please with how it runs, however I'm now looking for an upgrade on it now that a bunch of fun new parts have been release. Ideally I don't want to be buying all the parts again as I mainly want a change in CPU, GPU and Ram. Here is my current parts list. CPU
Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor £156.87
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler £24.00
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard £111.00
Kingston Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory £57.98
Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 60GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £43.84
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £44.00
MSI Radeon R9 280X 3GB TWIN FROZR Video Card £245.00
Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer £14.08
Microsoft Windows 8 OEM 64-bit £72.00
Cooler Master n400 £40.00
Corsair 600w GS £65.00
Additions to these parts are an additional SSD at 128gb and windows 10 of course.
Like I said previously I don't want to have to completely repurchase a PC, I'm mainly looking for an upgrade on the CPU, RAM and GPU for performance in games but also digital media software to help with future work. I may also like a case with a window on as I may rearrange my work space so I can actually see the damn thing! So what parts would you recommend? I have little knowledge compared to when I first build this PC so I'm curious to see how much of an improvement I can make.
