A Possible 2019 Upgrade
Hi all this is my current set up:

Intel Core i5 3570K.
Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard
Noctua NH-U12PSE2
Corsair XMS3 8 Gig DDR3 Memory
Corsair TX 750m PSU,
XFX R9 390:
Asus Xonor D1 Sound Card:
Coolermaster 690ii Advanced

Now I'm looking for ideas on what I can do for an upgrade I do all round gaming and I do allot of video editing too and I've built this set up about 4-5 years now so Its time to consider my options.

I'm looking at upgrading my memory to something like this:


Graphics card:

CPU Water Cooling To this:

Or should I put my eggs in basket and go over to AMD Ryzen or somewhere along those lines?

Any help would be great!

one important question what is budget

I would ditch the water cooling and put that money towards 16gigs of ram

Hi All thanks for the input: Around 300-400 at the most, I plan to sell my old bits to make way for a better video card:

I've had a look on the usual sites this idea is from Novatech:

MSI B450 Gaming Plus AMD AM4 B450 Chipset ATX Motherboard
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler
Corsair Hydro Series™ H60 (2018) 120mm Liquid CPU Cooler
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-14900 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit

This comes to £375
Your thoughts?
I did this 18 months ago and a few items which aren't on your list

Used a spare PCI slot to make a new USB 3.0 interface at the rear
Changed the mechanical drive to an SSD
I go with the AMD build if you are on a budget because you will more for the money

like timster said take it to 16GB memory
