    Build help - $300-400 to upgrade

    Yeah, I did a ton of reading and the Antec seemed to get some good reviews. Debated between this (from a frien) or ggettinga 500w Corsair' CX-M 500W, and the Antec seemed to be a clear run away winner.

    Just a Korean MMO (Blade and Soul), I have most things at 1-3 (out of 5), and it hangs a little bit sometimes (boss areas with a few dozen people taking down a single boss seems to be the worst). It is more heavily CPU intensive than it is GPU based, so I think even something like a GTX750 TI...

    Budget will be a bit increased over what was posted. I'll be gaming at 1080P, and willing to take some compromises. If I were start up a new tower - should I be looking at a Skylake build? You are correct my platform is pretty aged, and well ... even AMD's newest offerings right now seem like...

    Going to Necro-bump this thread. My student loans are paid off, and as it is, taking on a more stable job has given me a bit more time to game on my computer. Mainly MMO's, nothing super taxing on current build, but I have settings minimized a fair bit... Worth it to just throw new...

My primary concern is just being able to take advantage of a high resolution so as to fit more onto my screen, and have lots of things open...

    Need a new laptop... $500/13.3"

    Currently after just over a year with my netbook... i realize that outside of basic stuff I can't do much with it. And screen real estate is reeaaaaaaaaal small.
