I am an avid PC gamer. I have approximately $450 to do an immediate upgrade. I currently have an old 8600gts and a standard 512GB 7200RPM HDD. I try, as much as my current card will let me, to game at 1920x1080. Should I go all out on the video card and get a nice GTX 670? Or should I split the cash up and get a GTX 660 Ti and a 240GB SSD (since there are outrageous deals just about every day on SSDs)?
I have a KFA GTX 480 Anarchy GPU. This card is faster than the reference 480 cards. My motherboard is a Sabertooth X58. My psu is a Corsair HX750
I would like to know what would be a good replacement GPU that will allow me to either get better results from 1 or 2 cards. I can't afford 2 GPUs straight off so my budget would be around £350 tops.
I'm a new person to the world of gaming, and I wanted to buy a pc because i wanna play games like SC2, BF3, Skyrim, Fallout, maybe COD, and another bunch of games. I know which processor and components to choose, question is which Graphics card shall i choose? I was looking maybe for a HD7770 or a HD6850 or a GTX650. Also i wanna know which model (brand)?
I want to know if my 650W power supply will hold up?
I've got the following:
- Core i5 3570
- Cougar 650W CM PSU
- 8GB DDR2 1333
- 3 HDD's and a CD Rom
- A PCI Wifi card
- Cooler Master Gemini II S524
- GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H
I want to buy a GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD as it is on special, but want to know if my little 650W power supply will be able to handle all of this.
I want to buy a new monitor for gaming and photo editing, should I get a 1920x1080 @ 120Hz screen, or 2560x1440 @ 60Hz screen
I would be buying a new monitor.
Which would you recommend better?
An 1920x1080 120hz 2ms or 2560x1440 60hz 6ms?
For gaming and photo editing.
Should I upgrade my GTX 460 SLI (1GB each) cards to a newer gen card?
I overclock both cards constantly to 100MHz higher than stock to gain a bit more performance in newer games. I'd obviously like better performance! But I haven't seen any benching of my cards versus newer ones. That's to be expected, and I can compare to 560s or something anyway. But I don't have a definite idea of what's best to choose.
I run a 1080p monitor, and have an i7 920 @ 2.67GHz.
Any help would be great!

I currently have a core 2 e8400 and 6770's in xfire. I want to update to be able to play battlefield 3 smoothly. with limited funds to upgrade should I hold off and upgrade to ivy bridge or swap my xfire setup for a GTX 670?
I just have a little query here , supposing i had the option to buy either an Alienware M17x R4 (NVIDIA GT 680), or make my own desktop with similar GPU, which option will be more beneficial ( keeping the electricity consumption in mind ) ? and, assuming that i use the Laptop as a CPU only (using external FullHD projectors, audio systems etc ) .
Is it worth to upgrade from a gtx msi 560ti oc SLI system to a new gtx 670/680?
