Is It Time For An Upgrade?

Hi guys,

I shall post my computer setup from my profile below:

Antec 1200 Twelve Hundred Ultimate Gaming Case - Black
Gigabyte X58-USB3
Core i7 950 @ 3.50 GHz
Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 960
HyperX Genesis 8GB
128 GB Intel SSD
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Windows 10 64-bit

Would you say it's time for an upgrade?

  1. Depends..
    are you still happy with the current performance of your system? if yes then dont upgrade.

    A faster cpu wont give you much extra performance since I expect this system to be quiet balanced.

  2. Hi, I'm still using a similar, but probably slightly older setup to you. As hdgaming rightly says, its up to you based on the games or programs you use. I have gone as far as i can with upgrading my system now, but still loving the old girl. And will still keep up a steady 70ish FPS @ 1080P.

  3. It's adequate but sometimes the performance can drop slightly when multitasking, sometimes programs become a little laggy. I'm pretty sure that's down to the processor. The reason of potentially upgrading is due to future proofing and I don't think my system is future proofed for much longer.

  4. I thought about customising this PC: What do you think?

    it's a nice system, though you can build one yourself for less. :)

    You don't need that motherboard unless you go for K processors which allows overclocking, although you can take it and if you ever feel like upgrading to an i7 7700k for example you can and even overclock it than. :)

  6. Ok, thanks. What saving would I expect from building it myself?
