Currently I have an i7 - 860 system with 16 GB memory and an XFX 7870 2gb card in a Cooler Master HAF932. I have a small SSD for O/S and then several 1 tb Caviar Black drives for storage.
Primary use is general computing, gaming (want to be ready for GTA), and also as a DVR / TV.
Do these parts look like a worthwhile upgrade? Thanks for looking and for giving your opinions.
I can get the processor from Microcenter for $249.99 and the MOBO for $119.99 as a bundle. I have used Gigabyte boards in my previous builds and am looking to try something different.
