  1. Depends on your budget.

    Also depends on what kind of performance you are trying to achieve in certain games, as in what FPS, graphical settings, resolution you want to play at.

    And what GPU is in there at the moment?
  2. Current GPU is the radeon 4950 xfired...I want to average around around 40-50 fps on 1920x1200. Id like to run two monitors however need two matching ones. My budget is no more than 2k and I would prefer not go that high if I able, and stay about 12-14 hundred. Im just unsure as to whats out there and everything I read tell me I have a awesome CPU just need to OC it. So I figured I would get some help

    My current setup is
    I7-920 stock
    6gb of tri channel 1333mhz
    a 250gb HD
    AMD Readeon 4950x2 crossfire 512mb each
    thought this might help as well. Also Im unsure what my mobo is as the whole thing came from Dell.

    You probably won't be able to OC with a Dell. Personally, I think you only need to get a new GPU.
  5. Ooo?? Well this is still good news no doubt. So would you say GTX 760 ti
    or R9 280x??

    This is a nice looking build!!! Thanks for your input as well.
  7. Yeah Im thinking I may just slap a GPU in here and look at the purchase you put up as well...would you say the 760 ti or r9 280x as far as upgraded GPUs?? thanks again
  8. Alright my current PSU is a 1000 watt...looks like itll come down to brand prefrence now...I ve always been a fan of EVGA nvidia however that R9 sounds nice. Might look at saving a little money though.
  9. Very nice cards indeed!!!! Think I may go with R9 if Im not able to get one of the bundle deal,and thank you for your help its been greatly appreciated.
