It's my birthday coming up and I'm hoping for some money to put towards my gaming pc build. The parts of the build that are important to my question are: i5 2500 + any eBay 1155 mobo 8gb ddr3 (4gb now an extra 4gb later) GTX 1050ti 4gb
Right now I'm on a Pentium D (one of the higher clocked ones not that it matters) and a quadro fx1700 (modern Intel HD are better) with 4gb ram.
So my question is this, the CPU and mobo with a new PSU and 4gb ram would be £150 roughly (I have a case and hard drive) and the 1050ti would be the same price. Would I get more performance gain by getting everything but the GPU now or by putting the GPU with my Pentium D? Eventually I'll have the i5 paired with the 1050ti but I can't afford it all at once.
