After digging around in the old gaming savings for my recent The Witness purchase I noticed I have quietly accumulated enough to upgrade the old shit box at my feet.
I had always planned to upgrade the mobo and CPU next, but I'm not sure I can 100% be arsed with all that and can't help but wonder if I'd be better off just getting a GFX card and another SSD which tbh I could be doing with.
Here's the current state of affairs...
8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
2GB GTX 760
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
4GB GTX 970
My current mobo is a socket 1156 which is a bit of a dead end upgrade wise for the CPU so the whole shooting match will have to be replaced if I go down that route. If I do go for the mobo onboard 5.1 is a must, also with a new mobo will I need to get new RAM as well?
What do you think? What's the best bang for buck option? Which ever one I go for it will be Christmas before I can afford to upgrade whatever I skip this time round. Of course I'm open to other recommendations and suggestions.
