Hi guys,

My old graphic card (HIS 7950 IceQ X²) died after 5 years and i decided to upgrade my PC. This is my current build:

CPU: i5 4670K
CPU Cooler: Phanteks PH-TC14PE
Graphic card: -
Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4x4GB DDR3
Power: XFX 650W
Monitor: LG 24EA53
Headphones: Logitech G430
Keyboard: Some old logitech

I dont know for how long my other components will last but for now i just want to upgrade my graphic card, monitor (to get 144HZ at least), keyboard (get some cheap mechanical) and my headphones. With current headphones i had trouble hearing footsteps direction so I was thinking to buy AMP/DAC (read that sound card are not popular anymore) or new headphones.

After research i found out this components:

Graphic card: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB
Monitor: AOC G2590PX (1ms, 144HZ, FreeSync)
Keyboard: REDRAGON K557 (cheapest mechanical one i found in my local store)
Headphones: Read few reviews about Sennheiser (HD 599 or 600, but they are quite expensive)
DAC/AMP: Sound BlasterX G5 or FiiO E10K or Sennheiser GSX 1200

My PC is is about 5-6 ears old, do I need to replace something else or it is better just to buy new PC? My main concern is CPU cooler, because current one is getting loud. Should I get water cooling?

Please comment if this is OK to replace or should i get something else. Budget is around 600-700€, if there is some great deal it can go up few €.

Kind regards, Lukzar

1060 6GB or a GTX 1070 TI IF you keep the system. Would recommend a complete overhaul new CPU, mem, psu - if you have the budget. You could always replace the CPU cooler if you are worried and save money too. up to you
