haven't upgraded my computer for years and it runs fallout like absolute shit even on lowest settings/resolution so i figure i should look into it.
currently have i5-2400, asus p8p67 le motherboard, hd5770. i'm thinking of keeping my ram (12gb kingston ddr3) + hard drives/ssd + psu (750w corsair) + case (arc midi).
was looking at i5-6500 + a decent cooler + motherboard and either a 4gb gtx960 or 4gb r9 380. i've read that gtx960 uses less power (not a big concern) but also might be better in some games due to nvidia enhancements?? idk
main usage is either tf2/other fps games which i'll use fps configs on anyway + fallout 4 etc which i'd ideally like to play at least medium/high settings comfortably on my 120hz monitor at 1080p. i don't really overclock or anything except if i can do it thru the software (like amd overdrive or w/e)
need australian pricing if possible, from the looks of things i'll be out like $700-800aud all up? but cheaper is nicer.
also would i get any substantial improvement just by upgrading the gfx card and saving the other stuff for later? or should i just try and get it all in one hit
