Chest_Rockwell Posted August 10, 2018 Share Posted August 10, 2018 So I was excited about the release of Monster Hunter World yesterday but when I started it up I found I was having a lot of stuttering. There have been a few other games that this has been the case with in the last year so I am thinking it may be time for an upgrade (particularly my CPU). My last build was in 2011 (though I upgraded my video card a few years ago). I am posting my current build below and wondering if someone might be able to suggest some upgrades? This would primarily be used for gaming. I plan to stick with the monitor for now but could see getting something 1440p in the future. If possible, I would like to reuse any components that are still capable (such as the power supply, case, etc). Realistically, my budget is probably $1000 or less.
