Hardware Question

#1Rob_Van_Dam93Posted 11/18/2013 12:46:56 AM
I currently have 6Gb of Ram , a AMD Phenom Quad core 3.4Ghz , and a 550Ti

is there anything there I should look into upgrading?

Frame rate is usually tied to the Graphics card right? So if im getting studders in the game and have to lower the texture quality, then I should probably upgrade my card right?

If so is the GTX 780Ti , the best choice if I dont want to spend more than $1000??

The GTX780Ti is beastly yes, but your Phenom will bottleneck it badly.

Genius has its limitations. Ignorance has none.
