    Looking to upgrade my CPU, mobo and mem in next couple of months.

    Currently have a 4770k and 16gb ddr3 and asus hero mobo. PSU is Corsair HX850

    I have 2 ssds in a raid 0 and a 1080 that will remain. I also have a corsair H110iGT water cooling loop that i would hope to use also if possible.

    I will have between £400 and £500 to spend.

    As you can see i haven't upgraded in a while and am not sure how best to spend the money.

    PC is gaming use only really.

    I will look at upgradeing storage at a later date possibly to M2 drive

    I have lost track of hardware so am not sure whether to go AMD or Intel.

    Any suggestions please?

    as you will be using the 1080 and h110igt with the hx850, you will only need mobo, cpu and ram and should be no problem at your price range.
