I need some help with upgrading my PC to use with UE4.
Current setup is this:
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz box
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
Memory: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit Vengeance LP Rev. A
SSD: Intel Solid State Drive (SSD) 520 Series, 240GB, SATA 3, 2.5’’
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATA-II 7200.12
Graphics card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 470 OC
Power Supply: Seasonic M12II-620 Bronze 620W
CPU Cooler: Thermalright HR-02 Macho
Case: CM Storm Enforcer
Display: Monitor LED Samsung 24", Wide, Full HD, HDMI, S24B350H
My current problem is that my GPU is broken: I can no longer use the HDMI with it, but instead I’m using the DVI to VGA cable to connect to my monitor. Because of that, the image is not so good at 1080p, especially the text.
So, I’m thinking to upgrade my entire PC to last another 2-3 year if possible.
I would like to buy a 27’’ monitor with 2560x1440 resolution. I was thinking to buy the Dell Ultrasharp U2713H 27": Dell Ultrasharp U2713H 27" Monitor with PremierColor | Dell Emerging Countries – EMEA
A GPU to go with that resolution I think would be the GTX 780 TI, right? Or is GTX 780 enough?
I will definitely need more than 16GB of RAM, maybe 24 or 32.
Other than that I’m not sure what else should I replace.
Can I keep the motherboard?
What about the CPU? Would a **i7-4790 **or i7-4770 be way better than my i7-2600k ?
What about i7-4930K (Ivy Bridge) compared to Haswell i7-4790 (or 4770, which one is faster between the two)?
In terms of money, I think I would have around $2500, maybe lower. (the price actually is a little higher, like $3000, but in Europe the components are more expensive).
