Hello everyone. So in a month roughly I'll be upgrading the computer in my signature and wanted to start getting an idea of prices but I have a few concerns.
I. How much of an upgrade will an i5 3570k be for me over my 1055t (my 1055t is oc'd to 3.4Ghz)? Keep in mind I have a Coolermaster V6 GT so I can do overclocking with the i5.
II. Will I see much of a performance increase upgrading my graphics card to something around the $250 range? I was thinking maybe a GTX 560 Ti but I've googled around it doesn't seem like a big upgrade from the GTX 460, so what's the next big thing? (Someone buy me a GTX 690! :P) I found this for GTX 460 vs GTX 560 Ti AnandTech - Bench - GPU11
III. Will my power supply support all of this? I think so, but just making sure.
IV. How much $ am I looking at spending with a Ivy Bridge upgrade, a new graphics card, and a 500GB hard drive (could be green, don't need speed on this one)? Or an SSD, I wouldn't mind dropping data space for some speed.
I can spend $600, which I believe covers the Ivy Bridge upgrade and the hard drive, but I'm debating on the graphics card, what do you guys think? About the motherboard, I would like one of those mouse bios, they look nice, a nice change from the regular arrow key bios. And some Crossfire/SLI compatibility just in case.
Thanks a lot guys.
