I want to know your opinion, my gaming pc is starting to lag on newer games. I have a oldish pc.
here's my specs : Intel i7 920 quad-core, intel motherboard, 12 gb of ddr3 ram, 512 gb SSD hard drive, Nvidia gforce 660 GTI
I have two options, either change the video card, or change the cpu. But changing CPU imply a new motherbard and probably memory too, so changing the video card would be a lot cheaper. and if i change the CPU and the motherboard for cheap ones, would they will be stronger than my actual ones, or will i just pay for getting the same power at the end ?
But changing the video card migth not cope for the older CPU.
I know that my motherboard bottleneck me because I dont have any SATA3 port on my board, and I dont have PCIe X16 gen 3 slots, so my drive and a newer video card wouldnt work at their full potential.
Having that in mind, what do you think ? Should I updrade the video card, or save for buying a new CPU and motherboard later ? any suggestion on what parts would be a good deal ?
