I need help deciding what component to upgrade in my system for the best performance and value.

Hey guys I need help. This is my current setup.

MSI Gaming Z97-G45 Mobo
i5-4690K cup non overclocked
EVGA gtx 960 FTW non overclocked
1 terabyte ssd for video editing, games, and OS
9tb hdd for the rest of the stuff

I do video editing, video recording, gaming and more. I need to know what to upgrade and what to upgrade too. My limit is in the 300's. Thx!

    It will give your about nothing in performance gains since you can overclock your current CPU and get the same performance in editing.
    Bad suggestion for the money spent.

  5. 300's? Gtx 1060 for sure. Now thats quite the performance leap. Cheers!
  6. so go with a 1060 for 200 dollars, how much of a boost will that give
  7. Basically its like going from 960 to 980! It will make you go from medium to ultra
  8. but should i get the 3gb or 6gb varient?
  9. 6gb to really see the performance difference. As the 3gb would somewhat be a 970ish
  10. ?? its vram doesn't it not affect preformence?
  11. Best answer
    It only affects performance if you are playing in higher resolution. But games nowadays are starting to be more demanding so I would put my money on the 6gb version. It will be worth it :)
