I built my PC about two years ago following one of Austin Evans $500 builds on Youtube. This build ran pretty well, and I'd say it still does. However, as new games like Battlefield One and The Witcher 3 release, I find myself having to skip playing them because i know that my PC will be unable to run it smoothly, if even at all.
My specs are: Processor: AMD Anthlon X4 760K Quad Core Processor 3.80 GHz RAM: 8.00 GB OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Video Card: AMD Radeon R7 200 Series Motherboard: MSI MS-7721
I would like to upgrade to an EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, 8GB GDDR5, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) which goes for about $409.00 on amazon and an Intel Core i7 6700K 4.00 GHz Unlocked Quad Core Skylake Desktop Processor, Socket LGA 1151 which also goes for about $325.00 on amazon. Would these parts be compatible with my motherboard and other parts? Any alternatives/suggestions? Thanks. I really appreciate it.
