I'm torn between getting a new computer or just upgrading this old one. I want a computer that can handle 1080 ultra settings on modern games (Not really a fan of 4k gaming), be able to stream my games without lagging and probably record at the same time so I can edit them out later. I also need it to be able to make games from Unity or Unreal Engine. Currently this is my computer specs.
CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 @ 3.10GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte H61M-S2V-B3
Memory: 6GB Ram (Don't know what model)
Storage: ST31000524AS ATA
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti
Case: RAIDMAX AEOLUS ATX-818WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Power Supply: (Don't know what kind of power supply I have, but I think I'll replace it anyway.)
and here is the build that I want to make.
CPU: Intel Core i5-7500 @ 3.40GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H (Is there a cheaper one that works for this build?)
Memory: (Need suggestion on a 16GB ram)
Storage: Seagate BarraCuda 1TB HDD
Storage: Toshiba OCZ TL100 120GB SSD
Video Card: Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce 6GB
Case: Corsair Carbide Spec 01
Power Supply: EVGA 600 BQ
So should I upgrade or just buy a new one? I am sure that I have to replace both CPU,GPU, and Motherboard but for the casing I am wondering if the old one will work. Do you guys think it will fit right in? Also for my storage do I need to replace my old one or keep it and just buy the SSD? I'll be using air cooling. Any suggestions?
And if I am to upgrade, what should I get first?
