Hello folks. Been a while since I've been here, years in fact. Aside from a newer graphics card a few years back, my system has remained unchanged since around 2011. It's coped for most of that time period but over the last 12 months has started to show it's age. While a new system is not out of the question, if I can keep most of my current rig and just make a few upgrades then that is preferable, at least for now. My current setup is as follows: Case: Antec 1200 CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz GPU: MSI nVidia GTX 770 Twin Frozr Lightning 2GB Mobo: Asus P8Z 68-V LX RAM: 8GB Corsair XMS3 Cooler: BeQuiet DarkRock Advanced PSU: Corsair 850W Modular So my question is: will my current components support a simple processor and graphics card upgrade? What limitations would I have by wanting to keep the same motherboard? Are there even any viable upgrade options using that board that would make any difference? My PC is used 95% of the time as a gaming machine, but in the past I have done some video editing and would like to do so again in the future - not so much editing as compiling which in itself is a lot of computing work. For gaming, I currently have a 23" monitor with a native resolution of 2048 x 1152. Not looking for a 4K machine but would be nice to maybe get a bigger monitor at some point with a slightly higher resolution. I was very close to just ordering a new rig in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales but decided not to - at least for now. If ultimately a new rig is the way to go then I can start saving. I just thought if I can upgrade my current rig then it'll be cheaper meaning I can buy the components on finance and by the time the 12-month interest-free period is up I'll have saved enough to pay it off before interest starts. I've been looking at new full rigs around the £1300 to £1700 mark so bear that in mind with recommendations, obviously the higher the price of the upgrades, it may be better just to go for a brand new full system. Any advice/input is much appreciated. Cheers guys!
