Hi guys,

I need to upgrade my system now that it is about 6 years old and needs to step into the future. I have zero complaints with my current setup yet it is time to dawn new hardware to keep current or "future proof" as much as possible. I love playing my STEAM games and watching You Tube. I have a 3D vision monitor and another monitor for watching videos or game manuals etc. My wife recently got a job with Amazon on-line and I am losing my computer dammit but oh well.

Thank you guy's so much in advance for your time .

Here are my current specs:

Motherboard- M4A88T-M/USB 3
PCU- Phenom II X4 965 Non BE 3.4Ghz
GPU- EVGA Geforce GTX 960 SSC 4GB ACX 2.0+
RAM- Kingston Hyper X Fury Blue 8GB (2 x 4GB) + (1x8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory 16 GB
CPU Cooler- Zalman CNPS9500A-LED Ball Bearing
Storage- 500GB 5400 RPM SATA II hard drive
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Case- Cooler Master Elite 335 Upgraded ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply- Cooler Master eXtreme Power 600W ATX
OS- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 OEM (64-bit)
Monitors- Acer GD235HZbid 120Hz 23.6" Monitor

That looks like an awesome setup but could I save the extra for a better motherboard? Will the 2133 ram help the speed enough for the sacrifice?

That mobo is super sexy but would have to wait to save for a decent processor to compliment that beast.

Wayfall, if you were going to upgrade my build would you go Maximus VIII hero and an I5? Should I wait and save a bit more so it will last a couple years since I like ultra/ very high settings in games?
