So here's my current super-important specs, and if I bought them on Newegg I included its link (they're almost all discontinued now):
CPU - i5-760
GPU - GTX 560 Ti, 1GB GDDR5
PSU - 700W, single 12v rail
RAM - 4GB, DDR3 1600
I believe my biggest holdup is probably CPU, followed by RAM, then finally GPU. I believe I can afford to get CPU, mobo, and RAM - if I understand correctly PCIe 2.0 cards are compatible in 3.0 slots so that won't be an immediate need, correct? Next up, I believe the main debate between the i5-3570 and the i7-3770 more or less boils down to excessive continuous load such as video processing - what about streaming games online? For example, if I wanted to stream GW2, Starcraft, Street Fighter, etc. would the i7 be a worthwhile investment over the i5?
Side-question: I know nothing about solid-state drives other than they're expensive and apparently awesome. If I got a small one, to have the best performance would I use it for Windows 7, GW2, both, etc.?
Thanks in advance!
