I am just looking for some quick advice to see what people think. I am running an old Intel Quad core (Q9300) and a newer Nvidia GTX560 with 4GB DDR2 Ram and a SSD on Windows 8.
I mainly game on Guild Wars 2, Shogun 2: Total War and Civilization V.
I was thinking of just buying an upgrade pack (CPU, MB and RAM) as it is probably the components lacking but not sure if I really need it as most of the games above play fine. I do find Guild Wars 2 to be very CPU heavy and I can't quite play on max due to the AA and filtering etc.
I've been using this page for ideas: http://www.legendpc.co.nz/desktop-pc-upgrade-kit-xidg36366.html
and the i7 is only around $600 or could I just got for an i3 at around $300 or would neither offer a large improvement over the Q9300?
