    Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading my PC but not quite sure which areas to focus on.

    Here are my current specs:

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
    Gigabyte EX58-UD3R
    6.00 GB RAM (DDR3)
    ATI Radeon HD 5870
    Windows 7 64bit

    Could any helpful/knowledgeable people advise me what I should be looking at and recommend any potential components?

    Thanks!

    Put a spoiler on the back and some LED strips on the bottom.

    Youve got the same processor and mobo that i do, nothing wrong with them.

    Get a new gfx card and an ssd if you havent already got one

    Isn't the 920 an excellent overclocker? Before upgrading push that thing to the limit.

    @Dirtbox I've been playing Day-Z and wanted to run it on very high settings

    That's pretty much my spec and it plays almost everything on max at 1080p.

    I don't really see why you'd want to upgrade it, maybe an SSD or a beefier GPU if you're playing at stupidly high resolutions.

    I bought this back in 2009 so I assumed it would be more outdated!

    Thanks for your help all, I think I'm going to hold off for another year based on your responses.
