I just bought a new monitor (Samsung S23A750D) and I want to upgrade my graphic card.
- Samsung S23A750D
- AsRock Z77 Extreme4
- Intel I5 2500k @4,5Ghz
- 16GB of DDR3 1600Mhz G.Skill Ripjaws CL9
- Palit GTX 470
- CoolerMaster GX 750w
What card should i get? (cost ~650$)
I'm looking for my next upgrade.
I have the following currently:
Yamakasi qHD monitor.
AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE @ 4.3Ghz.
32GBs of DDR3-1333MHz G.Skill Ripjawz.
M4N98TD EVO (with the built in GPU turned onfor PhysX.)
EVGA GTX 670 @ Stock everything.
Samsung 830 for OS.
Some WD Blues for storage.
Where do I go from here? I don't really play that many 3D game as I used to, Skyrim is pretty much the only real 3D game I play anymore. I ask because I always feel the need for more power. I understand that anything from Intel will be better, but I haven't had any Intel desktop products since the Pentium 3 days. Should I wait for whatever is coming out from AMD or jump ship while I can?
P.S. - I'm a bang-for-your-buck kind of guy.
What's a GPU (costs under $200) that can play any games on the market at decently high settings?
Hi TweakTown !
I've MSI GTX 560-Ti Hawk, i want to change it to MSI GTX 660 Hawk or maybe SLI my GTX 560-Ti Hawk. And then if i want to SLI GTX 560-Ti Hawk what PSU should i choose ?
Will a Corsair TX850 power supply be able to power dual EVGA GeForce GTX670 Superclocked cards? CPU is an Intel Core i7-2600K running stock voltage settings.
Would the MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Power Edition be compatible with the ASUS P8H61-MX motherboard? Please answer, I cant find this anywhere.
What is the main purpose of the MacBook Pro with Retina display, can it handle 2012 games?
Can any current-generation laptop handle switching out the internal optical drive for a blu-ray drive? Is it chipset-dependent, or something else?
I have a question, What is the best GPU for my 1600x900 resolution monitor?
I will use it mostly for gaming and video editing in the future. And i want decent amount of FPS while playing BF3 on single player about 45-50fps is ok on me! :)
I just bought NFS Most Wanted (from criterion, the new one) and I was amazed that my 7850 won't cut the game at high settings. I would get frame drops that could get my frames to go below 30 per second. So I'm forced to get the settings to medium and then it's playable but still, I got drops that put my fps to the mid 30s. Yes the game has got excellent graphics, but I thought my Graphics would run every game at 1920x1080 High settings?
My Question is, is this normal? I would probably wait until they release the 12.11 Catalyst driver for download, but I don't think it'll fix this significantly when there is a problem in my system.
- M5A99X Evo
- Corsair 4GBx2
