Hi all. Posting here because I've found other inetersts / hobbies since building (and overclocking) pc's a few years back, and the tech has changed so much I haven't kept up at all. I'm still running an "old" C2Q - 9650 CPU (@ 3.6GHz) with a 6950 GPU (stock clocks) and a tiny little (gen 1) intel SSD and 8GB ram, running W7. It does most the things I want, but I've noticed that the newer games only run on Medium or even Low settings. Would a new GPU (thinking something like a R9 280) reinvigorate my PC, or would it be bottlenecked by the CPU? What sort of newer gen. processor would I need to notice a big improvement? What else has changed in the last couple of years? Is USB3 now the standard for most devices? (didital camers etc) How much would I need to spend to get a newer PC that was considerably better than my current one?
