    hi guys,

    my actual specs are:
    Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4 GHz (no overclock)
    Corsair 16 GB Vengeance Blue Low Profile
    ASUS Maximus IV Extreme -Z - LGA 1155 - Z68
    2x evga geforce gtx 780 ti superclocked
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus

    what do you guys think tha would be better:
    replace the vgas for another model (sli)
    if yes, which model

    or

    replace cpu,mobo,memos and cpu cooler for the new
    Intel Boxed Core I7-6700K

    what option would make my rig better to gaming

    i have a WLED 27" G-SYNC Rog Swift PG278Q ASUS monitor

    Wait if you can.
    Just oc that 2600k to 4500 or so for now.

    This year will bring lots of new gpu's, mb's and cpu's so buying right now is not advised.

    Save up for new hardware when it arrive. 14nm, ddr4,gtx1080ti? etc. Even Amd have some new toys arriving over the year. (if they will perform is yet unknown)

    If you wan't some new toys now; ssd's, some flashing mechanical keyboard/mouse/headset and new case are fun to pimp your pc with while you wait.
    A new psu is always good to have :)

    I would probably just sell those two 780's and bought a 980ti. You can keep the CPU, 2600k oc'd to 4.5ghz+ is still enough.

    This.

    Toss in an SSD and wait for Pascal, maybe upgrade your audio equipment depending on what you're using.

    I'd keep the whole rig as is and oc the cpu, then you can wait for the new Nvidia coming out this year.

    I'd say keep it until stuff comes around this year. Give it a good spin and enjoy it, with your next upgrade you'll finally be able to make real use of your funky monitor ;)

    thx for your replies guys

    the reason i am asking for your advice is because i live in brazil and i only buy pc components at USA.
    the prices in brazil are exorbitants.

    i am going to miami at march so i i 'd like to seize the oportunity.

    as some of you suggested, i've already have SSD, A good logitech headset, and a 1200w thermaltake PSU.


    i don't know if i ll go back to Usa later this year, so do you guys think that my rig, as it is now, can have a good performance with the games that are coming this year?
