Haven't been here in ages, but my current rig is about 4 years old and on the verge of biting the dust me thinks. Haven't stayed up to date with any tech and have basically been using this on the basis of 'till the wheels fall off'.
My current specs are i72600k, 4gb ddr3 1333, asus p8p67 board, gtx 470 1gb and 650w psu.
Thinking I might as well do a completely new build, but will probably keep the gfx card since I'm not really a gamer anymore and it still works.
Never had an AMD cpu, but am not against the idea if the price is right. Overall an upgrade would be great, but something at least comparable to these specs would suffice since my funds are limited.
Looking to spend anywhere from 600-1k, with the sweet spot being around 7/8. Will probably just keep the copy of Windows 7 I have unless someone can make a compelling argument for an upgrade on that too since as I said, I'm waaaaay outta the loop and I haven't read up on any of it.
Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!
