I have saved up some money to do a upgrade but at this moment I can only do either my gpu or my cpu for gaming.
here's my spec:
Gigabyte GA-b75m-d3h rev 1.1
intel core i3 3220 3.3ghz
Sapphire Radeon 7870 ghz edition dual -x 2gb gddr5
Cooler Master V550 80+ Gold
A-data XPG 4x2gb ddr3 1600mhz 9-9-9-24
So i'm looking at either a Sapphire R9 280x (or a used 290) OR a 3rd gen core i5. so what do you guys think? if you were in my position what'd you have done?
if cpu: budget around 20k
if gpu: budget around 26k (different cause will sell my current cpu or gpu)
Im playing almost all the new games @me dium-high settings at around 30-40 fps so want to improve my gaming experience...
**another question (didnt want to open a new thread): is it worth the hassel to sell my current mobo and cpu to go with 4th gen mobo+cpu?
as in: 3rd gen i5 v 4th gen i5 worth the hassel? or 3rd gen is good enough?
thanks in advance guys
