    What upgrades would you guys recommend?

    Hi guys I'm considering upgrades to my PC soon and I'm wondering what to do with it.

    Here are my specs:

    Do you think there would be any worthwhile updates for about £150 to £200?

    Thanks

    It might be worth plonking in an FX8320 and an SSD:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-CT24...&keywords=m500

    TBH,I would probably see how your current rigs first.

    Edit!!

    Nvidia cards with reference coolers can throttle after extended periods of gaming,so I would also check with EVGA Precision while gaming to see what your clockspeeds are. It might be with raising the fanspeed manually while gaming.

    Re: What upgrades would you guys recommend?

    I would advise an upgrade to you CPU as well (unless you have overclocked it through clocks and northbridge), but would not advise an SSD just for gaming. Unfortunately, upgrading CPU can also mean upgrade to motherboard. One of the FX series should be suitable.

    Should you be playing Battlefield 4 I would also advise an upgrade to your GPU. Maybe to something like the 280x/gtx 770.

    Or if you want some better future-proofing then an R9 290 (if you have the cash).

    would suggest the fx range of cpus and
    may be change the graphics card to either r9 270x/ gtx 760(£20 to 30 more expensive than gtx 660)
