Brick Posted November 22, 2018 Share Posted November 22, 2018 Six years ago you guys helped me build my first proper gaming PC, and now the time has finally come for me to upgrade my components, so once I again I kindly ask for your help since this will be my first upgrade! I'm guessing it should be pretty simple, at least in terms of swapping out the parts (take old part out, put new part in) but what exactly will I need to replace with better parts? Obviously I need a new GPU and CPU, and the 2080Ti is what I have my heart set on, plus whatever the best Intel chip is out right now to go along with it, but what else? I have 16GB of RAM, so I don't think I'll need new RAM, but what about a new motherboard? Will I need to order a new one? How about PSU? Is there a calculator out there that can help me figure out what my wattage use is now, and what it will be with my new parts so I can determine if I'll need a new one? My current one is 750 watts, so I have no idea if that'll be enough. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday upon us, and us Canadians taking advantage of your holiday sales I think this would be a perfect time to look for any deals on components, and would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks in advance friends! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
