Solved Upgrading Graphics Card or Monitor? Tags: Gtx Graphics Cards Monitors Intel i5 Graphics Last response: July 25, 2013 12:16 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ayimera July 25, 2013 12:00:38 PM I'm currently running on a 21.5" (about 6-7 years old) 1920x1080 monitor with an i5 2500k and GTX 460 card for gaming. I was considering either upgrading to a 23-24" monitor (http://tinyurl.com/65og3ns) or a GTX 670 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - although it's a little pricy right now compared to the monitor). Suggestions as to which I will benefit most from right now? Thanks!

By today's standards, a GTX460 is low-midrange, depending on what model it is (performs between a GTX650 or HD7750 and a HD7770). Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Or, if you don't play games that often, a new monitor should be a good investment. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
