I have now a pc based on Amd (6300) with 8GB RAM a Sapphire R9 280x(3GB),21'monitor,ssd,hard drive in a Fractal Design Midi case.I want to move to Intel,to make it more game proof for the latest games like GTA 5 (with this pc i didn't manage to run it ) .In this case i think i have to change,for now,my motherboard and cpu...no?
Thanks a lot guys!
For this 2 parts,motherboard and cpu, 600 euro .Italy
You may want to change the RAM as well...

Now this will be slightly over 600Euro, but you are set for every game ever made evar... In the next 3-4 years...
At this moment i have this
So i have to change it?
You're going to need DDR4 no matter what new platform you go
X99 is better if you do more than gaming, but otherwise you're going to want an i7 6700 most likely
and if you can find the budget MSI H110/B150 VD or Gaming boards those are pretty good for the money
just look more into your motherboard, I spent about 3 seconds searching here
The Italian part picker doesn't seem to be very up to date

Well yeah... Intel has moved to DDR4 now... By September we are expecting AMD to move to DDR4 as well...
So yeah. You will have to get new ram as well.
Not only... DX12 is expected to take advantage of extra cores. So 6 cores will perform better.
Probably not entirely nessisary aside from maybe any future games that are really CPU intensive and that you need to hit 144hz in
Streetguru,what do you mean by more than gaming .I will use this pc for some gaming,online and some photoshop editing (but nothing extraordinary,even now with this one i can do it) .
Like video editing or streaming, then you'd want to throw the extra 200 to X99
