Should I buy a monitor, headphones, HHKB, or a GPU?
>>
You're staring at a monitor right now. Gaming, surfing, creeping, whatever, you'll be staring at a monitor 6+ hours a day. Get a new monitor.

disagree; if hes the type of person who has to ask this question likely he wont really be able to tell the difference between varying monitors.

something that will make a more noticible difference in all of his computer related functions would of course be a graphics processing unifier (gpu); regardless of the monitor he has - a better gpu will make it look better.

I currently am using integrated graphics, a 15" LCD from 2005, a membrane keyboard, and $40 headphones(HD668B)
>>
>>26195757
just buy some cheap headphones and keyboard on monoprice then spend big for the GPU unless your CPU also sucks
>>
>>26196542
I already have a cheap keyboard and headphones, anon.

If you don't play too much vidya, go buy yourself a nice ips panel monitor.
>>
>>26196758
I can only buy it from Best Buy. I don't know what is good.
>>

TN panel is the cheaper older, run of the mill panel, they aren't bad, and the "gaming monitors" can reach 144hz refresh rate for a reasonable price, but of course, that is for CSGO players, or for people with decent GPU's. IPS has a higher price point, but the color reproduction is much better and more accurate, but for a good price have the standard 60hz refresh rate, which is perfectly fine. Anyway, you can probably get anything above 22 inches and be good.

yeah you should definitely go for a graphics card given your setup...

there is one ... variable that would make me disrecommend getting a gpu... but firstly:

what are the other specs for your computer currently as well as your budget?
>>
>>26197024
i7-4790K
Noctua D15
2x8GB DDR3 1600
650W EVGA SuperNOVA gold rated
Asus Z97-A/USB3.1
850 PRO SSD
Fractal Design Define R5

You can now understand why I am concerned with my 15" 1280x800 LCD and $10, 5 year old keyboard/mouse.

I have $300($284 in reality because of tax) on a Best Buy gift card, and I have $233 on my debit card... or at least that's the most I'd like to spend. I have like $1100 in reality just on my debit card.
>>
>>26197080
at the very least i would cross off keyboards/mouse/headset off the wishlist ... my philosophy regarding those types of peripherals is not to replace them until they break.

well... with regards to your system i am tweaking my answer slightly: i dont think you can go wrong with either a gpu or monitor.

... to help you quantify your decision: would you prefer more "screen space" or "slightly higher fidelity" graphics.
>>
>>26197080
put that 233 into an HHKB because you will literally never buy another keyboard in your life. put that 300 on your gift card into a new mouse and the best monitor you can afford. anyone that says something else is a fucking faggot IRL
>>
>>26197018
Enjoy your planned obsolescence when Pascal comes out in a few months, cuck
>>
>>26197254
OP here... This is why I haven't bought a GPU yet.
>>
>>26197254
nice meme anon grate job
>>
HHKB for sure

these. HHKB is god-tier and 15" monitor wtf OP you can use that best buy card to get something way better like a 1080p IPS for only like $100. Don't bother with headphones. the sound quality doesn't improve after like $50, it's mostly the build quality and comfort.
>>
>>26197080
>integrated graphics
>$200 keyboard
anon why not a buy cheap IPS monitor
and low/mid-range GPU like a 380X or a 290
>>
>>26195757
Why the fuck do people buy happy hacking keyboards? do you people not use the Super key ever?
