this is my motherboard now https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VII_RANGER/ it has a Intel Core i5-4690K in it and would like to change it to something stronger is this motherboard able to run better cpus or do i need to buy a new motherboard
it is water cooled i dont know if thats enoughThe strongest and only reasonable CPU upgrade for that mobo is the i7-4790K. Be sure you have a decent cooler. You should be able to get 4.6-4.7GHz out of an i7-4790K. You can also try overclocking your i5-4690K if you haven't already.
| NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970|
4 GB VRAM
| 16 GB RAM|
Random Access Memory
these are some specs it has
I only play online games is it better if i just bought a new pc or upgrade this oneYou have only two options for better cpu performance using your current motherboard and ram.
1. You can overclock your 4690K. This will help if you are a gamer and play cpu centric games like sims, mmo and strategy games.
2. The only reasonable cpu upgrade is a i7-4790K. They sell for about $180 used on ebay.
You would get 4 more threads which would be must useful for multiplayer games. You can OC this also.
What is the make of your liquid cooler?
Regardless, most any cooler will be sufficient for either upgrade above if it is doing the job now.
Past that, you are looking at current gen ryzen 3000 or intel 9th gen processors.
For them, not only is a motherboard replacement needed, but you will need DDR4 ram also.
You might budget perhaps $600 for a upgraded cpu/mobo/DDR4
Less than you hope.if i sell my pc whats a good price to get
