Upgrading from an FX-8120 8-core 3.1ghz to an i5 of some model. (3570k or 4670k?)
I'm pretty sure I'll need to replace my motherboard for this.
So, specific models of CPU/motherboard suggestions would be nice. My budget's about 500-600 dollars, also looking into a slightly faster hard drive. Got a 750 watt power supply and am currently running a single-GPU configuration with a GTX TITAN, and I'm sure my cpu is bottlenecking it a bit, as well as probably my hard drive. I'm hoping to get my framerate a little more consistent. I notice that in a lot of games playing with certain settings (Especially open-world games, Skyrim being a particular pinecone in the fruit salad) doesn't really affect performance that much, so I'm guessing it's my CPU/Hard Drive. Once again, looking for suggestions. The base computer is... this
Only the 6670 is replaced with a GTX TITAN and I'm now running Windows 7. Also, anything I should really know about replacing the mobo and CPU would be nice. I'm a bit new to computer-building.
Also, internal lighting? Looking for something purple to clash nicely with the red front and the green lettering on the TITAN
