Gentlemen, I need your opinion on my system

#1DeathHopePosted 9/8/2013 7:56:40 PM
It's been 2 years since I have build this system from scratch and with the influx of *next-generation* games being released in a few months time I feel that my rig would be underpowered to play them


System specs:

OS: WIndows 7 x64 bit Home Premium
RAM: 4GB , 2x of them
Gfx card: AMD Radeon 6850
CPU: Intel I5-2500 @ 3.3Ghz
Motherboard: P67-DS3-B3

I used to play games on my 19inch monitor on 720P; i can play virtually any games on High and still have a pretty good FPS (around 60)

Recently changed to a 23 inch monitor, some games are not even close to 60fps on Medium (1080p)


So, any thoughts?
Do i upgrade?
If so, which part?

It depends on how much you want to spend, but I would say out of anything a GPU upgrade would do the most. For around 200 you can get a 7950 or for 300 you can get a 7970.

Monitor size is literally entirely irrelevant to performance

that's cuz the GPU's having to shift around alot more pixels on a larger display with higher rez

Your CPU is still pretty capable. Just get invest in a better graphics card if you want to play in higher settings.

ATI : 7850 or better
Nvidia : 660 Ti or better

Pop a new GPU in there and you should be good to go.
