  • Updating Parts

    Hey - Just got new Call Of Duty.... Game struggles when maxed out so would like to update everything needed along with an SSD.

    Please state what to upgrade and links if possible? Would really like a SSD too.. Thanks

    This is what i currently have...

    If it were me I would get an SSD + a better GPU and leave the rest alone.

    If you've a P67 or a Z board over clock the i5-2500K you should be good for 4-4.2Ghz with out too much effort.
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

      THIS^^

      SSD if you want some general snappyness (sp?) and a new GPU with more VRAM for game performance. CPU overclock will obviously help to.

      What monitor resolution do you have?

            Great board and if you haven't been overclocking your CPU up to this point frankly you have been doing it a massive disservice! 4.2Ghz should be easily achievable with your cooler I will look tomorrow for a good guide but honestly it is very easy, just takes a little time to prove stability.

              Hi Finners. Thanks do you have Skype? Would be easier to talk on there about OVC? Also which SSD would you recommend thanks

                  Is there a faster SSD? or how fast is that one

                    850 Evo is pretty damned fast. One of the fastest in fact... On the other hand even a slower Crucial drive will be a vast improvement over a regular hdd.

                        any modern ssd will be like night and day vs a spinner

                        i would look at the amd 480 over the nvidia 1060. the 1060 will give the same level of performance while using less power in somethings. but the lack of async for dx12 and vulcan is a big issue going forward to my eyes and then the extra vram will allow the 480x to stay relevant longer.

                        a good cooler would also be on the list if you do not have one. once you start to overclock the cooler will really help

                          Possible to ask for a link for what a decent cooler is? Thanks

                            really it depends on how much you want to spend. coolers like the evo 212 are great performance for their cost. as you want to start removing those next few degrees the cost goes up much more but the more expensive coolers are able to hold the same temps at much lower levels of noise, or with the same db level offer lower temps.

                            coolers like the d14/15 phanteks p14 and silver arrow are the top tier of air blowers imo with only really looks being the reason to pick one from the other. these coolers are the same price bracket as the cheaper all in one water cooled loops, but do not think that makes the water better. good air beats cheap water in all things other than size. these are big air coolers and that is how they do their job.

                              He's already got a 212 Evo.. Or are you suggesting he upgrades from that?
