I've had my current system for about 5.5yrs and am trying to decide between building ($1800-2000) or investing ~$500-700 into my current build. Any input on where I'm going to get my best value?
Greetings. I would say just look into a new build.
Upgrade motherboard - would have to change the processor to something currently sold, or vice versa for upgrading the processor. Might have to change RAM as well, and most likely would need a copy of Windows.
Upgrade video card - any newer/high end cards will bottleneck with the processor you have, so you wouldn't get the actual performance of the card.
Monitors and storage can come over to the new build no problem.
