Hi!
I'm posting this in general, since its a general question. Not neccecarily connected to phones.

So recently I've been testing out my hardware pretty hard when it comes to games.
And I'm not getting what I want.

What I want is to play at high settings with a high steady FPS (doesnt anyone?)

Games I've been testing are:
Battlefield 4
Wildstar Online
The Elder Scrolls Online

So I'm thinking of upgrading my computer,
but I'm wondering what I should upgrade first, or if its even needed?
I thought of upgrading my RAM to 32GB, or buying a new (or another one like the one I have?) GFX-card?

Specs:
Mainboard: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe
CPU: Intel Core i7-3930k 6-core 3.2GHz (Overclocked to 4.4GHz)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i
HDD\SSD: Western Digital Green 2TB SATA3 6Gb/s + Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB
RAM: Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1866MHz 16GB Kit (4x4GB)
GFX: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 2GB PhysX CUDA
PSU: Corsair TX 850W PSU

Screens: 2x 24" Asus LED VG248QE
Headset: ASTRO Gaming A50 7.1
Mouse: Mionix Naos 8200
Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K70

Any help is appriciated!

regards,
Dag

This should be discussed in the off-topic thread....
32 gb RAM, what you wanna do? Play Battlefield 4 or develop it?

8 Gb is enough, buy a good graphics card and make sure you atleast have a processor equivalent to 2nd gen core i5
