Upgrading my rig

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about upgrading my pc rig but unsure if it would fit together and all be compatable with eachother. I've looked into it all but would like another opinion as I am always wrong most the time with my computer.

The build will be:

MOBO - z270 a pro

CPU - i5-7600k

CPU Cooler - ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev.2

GPU - asus turbo 1060 6gb

RAM - 8gb ddr4 hyperX fury

Case - Cosair spec-01

It will be a good combination, only i recommend you to take a look at 16gb RAM. I swear it will improve your system.

But from what I can see it looks pretty decent :) the only thing is the 16bg of ram but that was already mentioned so yeah, looks nice!

I would just say upgrade your CPU to the max your motherboard will allow, not sure if that's the i7 4770k or the 4790k.

Yeah, upgrade your cpu to 4790k, not really worth the money youre going to spend from what you already have

Hey buddy,

Looks good! I'd consider dropping the 1060 down to a 970 - slightly cheaper, less cores, less RAM but depending on exact manufacturer of 970 you'll prob see very similar performance... could spend the money you saved on 16Gb RAM rather than the 8Gb.

(I've not checked GPU pricing in a couple of months, so things might have changed but worth checking out!)

Overall, if you are upgrading bit by bit I would always recommend: PSU (so you have a good power baseline to work from), then SSD, Graphics Card, CPU cooling, then the big one... find a CPU, Mobo and RAM combo deal

After that it's just cosmetics and case fans, but I have run my rig on my test bench with 2 desk fans blowing through it before (rather than case fans) and it's been fine! :)

If you want to play ArmA better I recommend getting 8 or more gb ram.
