Now my PC is really good already. But I have $350 disposable to spend, and what better way to spend that on then my PC?
I do play games a lot, but I need extra power for heavy premiere pro rendering/various adobe products. Here are my specs, then I'll list some ideas I had.
CPU: AMD FX 8350 (Oc'd to 4.6 on an EVO lol, it's surprisingly stable.)
GPU: Gigabyte windforce GTX 770
RAM: 16 GB 1866 Mhz
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth 990fx
PSU: PC power and cooling silver 950w
So here are my ideas:
1. Get a second 770 because I like those extra frames, will my CPU bottleneck and will an extra card help with media encoding?
2. Upgrade to a better intel CPU which might not be needed, AMD FX 8350 trails behind the i7 3770k in Adobe programs so I'm probably ok. Of course I'd have to buy another MOBO as well, so imo it might not be worth it.
3. Get a better cooler for my CPU and OC it further. A noctua nh-u14s perhaps?
Any other ideas? I will only buy new computer equipment if it helps with gaming and or adobe program performance. I feel like the second card is the best option because that would get me the biggest performance boost, at least in gaming.
Get another 770. If you're satisfied with your current rendering, you should stick to that setup. A better cpu cooler probably wont push the performance that far. Sadly, my nh-d14 only does 4.5 stable on my 8350. For the money, I would probably just get the 770 for the extra frames. I doubt you would see THAT much of a difference if you replace your CPU. plus, you would have a useless cpu and mobo. If you had a bit more, you might want to consider an if you dont already have one
