Hi, I'm currently trying to upgrade my 3 year old gaming rig. I have roughly $700 to invest in optimal component upgrades from my current specs. I'm looking for the most optimal compatible build for the following current components:

CPU- Intel Core i5-4570 @3.20GHz
RAM- 8GB DDR3
GPU- GeForce GTX 760
Motherboard- ASRock H81M-HDS

I greatly appreciate any advice and help!

Some more information please, what are you using it for and what wattage is your Power supply? If gaming a 1000 series card would be a good choice, SSD is always a good choice and potentially more RAM.

Get a GTX 1070, an Samsung 850 EVO 250gb SSD and EVGA G2 550w graphics card. Will give you best bang for your buck. You can also get a new case if current one is old and not so sexy......

Good choices. You could just buy a single 8gb ram stick but whatever.
Decent power supply choice. That unit is made by Seasonic. Going with 1060 is kinda low considering you could fit a 1070 in your budget. But more than suffice for 1080p gaming.

Solid build overall. Happy gaming.
