    PC Build - what to upgrade?

    I posted here back in 2014 and after much discussion this is what I built (2014):

    - Intel Core I7-4790K
    - ASUS Z97-K INTEL Z97 ATX LGA1150 MOTHERBOARD
    - GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD GEFORCE GTX770
    - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
    - Memory 24GB RAM
    - COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 EVO CPU COOLER (I've added more fans, can't remember the name)

    I play WoW and I need it to run like a dream. Do I need to upgrade anything? If so, what and why? Could you please help.

    Current WoW recommedation:
    - Intel Core i7-4770
    - GeForce GTX 960 4GB
    - 8GB RAM

    You look like you could do with a GPU upgrade.
    The 770 will be quite the bottleneck.
    I'm happy with my 16GB RAM, 4790K @4.5GHz, GTX1080 for high Hz 1080p gaming for the time being.

    What resolution/hz monitor are you using?

    Assuming you have an SSD, GPU only.

    Rest is fine. If you're also running on an HDD, SSD.

    Get a RX 480/580/590/1060 from TradeMe and you'll get a noticeable difference for no more than $250 (plus SSD if need be).

    You won't notice a difference if you change anything else.
