    What Should I Upgrade in my Build?

    Hey MPGH,

    I built my PC in around April. Here are my specs below, let me know what you would recommend that I upgrade.

    i5 4690k OC'd to 4.5ghz
    MSI Z97 PC Mate
    Corsair H75 Liquid Cooler
    8GB GeIL Leggera RAM
    Gigabyte R9 290
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB
    Kingston HyperX Fury 120GB SSD
    NZXT Source 210
    Ultra 650 Watt 80+ PSU
    LG 22M37D 1080p, 60 hz

    I was thinking that first off I should upgrade my monitor to the cheapest 1440p/144hz one, then upgrade my PSU, and then throw in a second 290. Currently some of the games that I play include CSGO, The Crew, NBA 2K15(Gonna play 16 when it comes out), and Project Cars.

    I can afford 4k, I just think that it would be maybe better to get a 1440p, 144hz Freesync instead of a 4k monitor.

    Well it is up to you.
    If you play fast paced games like cod,cs,etc. get 1440p 144hz
    If you like high quality beautiful games/videos/pictures get a 4K

    I'd look into purchasing more RAM for your computer. For me, I am constantly at 7GB usage.

    First, no because try it until you get used to it, when you don't feel like it, upgrade your build.
