Future Upgrade, opinions and suggestions please

JuanViCa

My actual build:

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/BB4nGf

Intel i7 3770 3,4ghz 3rd Gen MOBO: Intel DH61WW GPU: Asus Radeon R7 370 4gb strix edition Power supply: EVGA 500W

GENERIC COMPONENTS<<

8gb RAM 1333mhz 2TB Storage

My question is that i would like to make an upgrade in the future (like 1 year from now) but i would like to start now from little things, like another 8gb of RAM. By this time I can run the witcher 3 ULTRA SETTINGS but in a resolution of 768p. Can someone help me? if I want to run this kind of game on 1080p or even 2K?

I could say that I need a new MOBO, GPU and +RAM but you are the professionals c:

its my first time using this plataform, Thanks.

And by the way, sorry for my english.

What your going to want to do is switch the processor and video card budgets and go make a new build + the other parts (ram, cooler, sotrage, case).

Overall, your processor is perfectly fine, the only upgrades you only really need to do is

  1. Replace GPU, 1070 = good at 1440p, god at 1080p
  2. Increase ram, 8gb is perfectly fine but I recommend 16gb if you can (mhz speed should be 1600+, dont worry to much since the only time the speed really matters is in rendering of photos & movies)
  3. PSU is perfectly fine, but I'd recommend replacing it because of age (600+ is my recommendation)
  4. GET A MF SSD IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

If you do plan to do a new build 1. Do you really need the i7? if not, just get an i5 2. Do you really need to overclock?

MOBO = if you're not overclocking, no need for a Z-chip mobo Ram = 8gb or 16gb is fine GPU = 1070 will overkill any 1080p games PSU = replace for sure SSD = I'd recommend getting a 240gb+ ssd and combo it with any spare HDDs
