Hi guys, I need some advice. Currently, I have an XFX 7950 Gt card with 512 mb installed on my machine. I have 2 gb of Corsair ram and an intel e6400 core 2 duo. My question is this:
Will I see any noticeable gaming difference in my machine if I swap the 7950 with the ATi 4850 card?
Currently, I am using a monitor(19") that only has a resolution of 1280x1024. Will using such a 'weak" monitor render any performance gain from swapping the cards negligible?
I would say go for it, the other guys have covered the main pro's and cons of it (mainly pro's) but the selling point for me would be the fact that you could mostly turn up the eye candy to a new level as TGGA says and as he also pointed out you are then sitting pretty should you want to get a bigger monitor later.
