    Hello all! New user here!

    I have a question - my wants an upgrade of his ca 2013/14 PC but i don't know what to get. We also need to build a new budget PC, somewhat comparable to what he has now.

    Have now/Old PC: asus MB, SLI capable. GTX 660Ti graphics. Intel i5-3570K socket 1150. 8GB RAM. Small SSD + HD.

    Primarily, i wonder what modern parts (processor, graphics, RAM) have comparable gaming capability to his old parts?

    Secondary - what parts would constitute a reasonably good upgrade if he wants a 1151 / Skylake configuration? (I am worried that it will cost too much, maybe better to upgrade with better 1150 processor + new graphics instead?)

    Either we upgrade and build the budget PC on the old parts. Or, make an all new budget gamer PC and take whatever is left of the money and upgrade based on 1150.

    Sorry if i mess it up :)

    Thanks in advance!
