Hi guys,

I would like to share my current rig and ask for any reco / suggestions..

Mobo: ECS X58B-A2 BLACK (x58) Cpu: Intel Core i7 920 (Bloomfield 1366) Mem: (x2) Kingston DDR3 1333 2Gb Gpu: ATI Radeon Sapphire HD 5670 Psu - Corsair 400w

Someone suggested to me that upgrading my GPU and my PSU should do me good for my gaming needs. But I'm also kind of thinking of building a new rig?

Mobo: Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150 Cpu: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5GHz Quad-Core Mem: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Gpu: MSI GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB TWIN FROZR Psu: XFX 750W ATX

Either I'll push with this rig or buy a GTX 970 + PSU. What could you guys suggest? Is my current rig still good and just go with an upgrade or not?

I can certainly recommend the GTX970 , I have an EVGA one , its like coming out of the dark into the light ! You don't say what OS you are using , but upping your ram if you are using 64bit , sill not hurt either . I chose the EVGA as they are giving free upgrade from 3yr warranty to 5 , and a free backplate too , you will only need a 500W psu .
