Q6600 2GB Ballistix Tracer pc6400 Ram HIS Radeon 3870 Ice3Q
I'm wondering if I should go all the way or just do a video card upgrade. Thoughts?
Going "all the way" would provide the most noticeable boost in performance for you. If you're on a budget though, you can try just the GPU at first and see whether or not you're happy with the results.
Either way, you win.
I wanted to see what will happen with a new 3870 (already on order) and OC'ing my opty. I'd be lying if I said I did not wanna go all the way with an upgrade though
I think that is what I will do. I'll just OC the opty as far as it will go and wait. Yes it is a dual core, got it last year. That is the main reason why I hesitate because I just got it a year ago. The 7800gt, however, is showing its age.
If you really want to upgrade get a 3870X2. Those suckers will roar!
