What would be a good upgrade to my GPU?

What games can't you max, or play on high?

You should watch the temps on the CPU and GPU


Well...ok, I'm gonna change my statement. I can play a lot of games on high but usually not max (unless it's something like Dishonored). Some games I can't max: Battlefield 4 (even on all low settings, sometimes it dips below 40fps), Far Cry 3, Company of Heroes 2 (which runs like s*** on every PC), some other stuff. Blood Dragon for instance, I can run on High/Very high, but I can't do MSAA for some reason (or at least not if I want 60 FPS).

The temps are fine, I think (if I remember correctly).

What at resolution though?


1080p

I think it's the CPU bro. The i5 750 is pretty old especially since the recent i3 beats it in single core performance. So if you are playing a 2 core game, the i3 edges it out.

Time for an upgrade.

That's what I thought when I made my last topic, but like I said, "..some people said wasn't the problem with my rig -- I did OC it to 3.4ghz, but honestly I don't notice a difference (maybe I did it wrong, idk)."

So even OC'd it won't cut it?

7850 is a good GPU to have paired with that CPU. I normally have a 580 paired with my phenom II and I get bottlenecks in many modern games. If you upgrade, go big tho, look into at least a GTX 770 or a 280x or something.

For Battlefield 4, make sure that Mantle is activated. Mantle will do wonders for older CPUs

Don't upgrade for $300.
7850 is a respectable card, and the "upgrade" for a $300 card is going to be a massive disappointment.
