  1. Hello ?
    Recently, I need more speed for my computer.
    Basically I want upgrade hardware but I am not expert: I need some advice.
    I am using my computer for Computer Animation: Mostly Autodesk Maya.

    I am in the middle of learning Animation Part and realize if I am going to use MentalRay with Animation,
    I have to wait a long time [I believe].

    Currently my computer's spec:
    i5 2500K.
    ASRock P67 EXTREME 4
    8GB of RAM
    GTX 560TI of 1GB

    Which hardware should upgrade ?

    Bugget is not really matter, however I think "Enthusiast's level".
    Maybe, $1500.

    I have more question:
    As I said before, currently I have "ASRock P67 EXTREME 4 - Mainboard"
    IF I want to buy "Intel Core i7 4770K" , Can I still use my current Mainboard ?

    No. 4770K is for socket 1150 while your motherboard has socket 1155. They are not compatible.
