    Hey, I use my PC solely for gaming and making videos - And I plan on improving it over summer, could someone please tell me what to upgrade and suggest upgrades? I'm not very good at hardware specs.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, or it is really obvious but I'm completely lost, thanks in advance.

    The areas I mainly want to improve on is load in time into games and rendering times for videos - To be honest it seems fine with all the latest games, but I find I load in really slowly to HoN and I am buying a new case so I might as well upgrade it at the same time

    AMD Phenom x3 could be changed to a x4 965 Black Edition. But since you're getting a new case, switch to z77 with an i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge for your editing. The RAM can be upgraded to 8GB I guess.

    Do you have a budget?

    Not really, I get 80 a month and I only really need to spend 10 or 20 of that so I can put 60 in to the budget each month, but I also get work money as well
