Hi all, I've been out of the game for quite some time, and never really knew that much anyways. I could use some help with deciding whether I should upgrade or start a build from scratch.
My Current system:
Mobo: Biostar T277B
CPU: i5-3450 3.1ghz
8 GB of ram
I plan on upgrading the 780 to a 1080 regardless, but am trying to determine if upgrading my processor and going to 16GB of ram is the way to go, or if I should start with a newer motherboard and get a new i5 or i7.
I saw on newegg that there are 6-core intel processors now (coffee lake I believe). Are 6 cores good for gaming? I am looking to max out Battlefield and current and future total war titles on a 1080P or 2K monitor.
Thanks in advance for any help
Edit: Here is a preliminary idea that I had. Please let me know what the better value is, and what (if any) performance increase I would see from the total overhaul build.
1) CPU / MOBO combo - http://www.microcenter.com/product/5...erboard-bundle
I have 2 SSDs, I heard there is a new type now. If that would really improve load times I would consider a recommendation there as well.
