Hello Guyz,
I need sum advice,
I hav around 200$ & i really really want to improve the performance of playing games.
yesterday i installed crysis just to play the beautiful game again. The settings were set on
high with no AA on 1680x1050 res & i was getting 28 avg FPS.
I was really freaked out cuz i couldnt play with all of those laggings. So rite now i dont know what to upgrade either my GPU or my CPU?
I was thinking to get AMD Phenom II 940 for CPU & ATI 4850 for crossfiring.
My specs are;
AMD Athlon X2 6000+ @ 3.2ghz
MSI K9A2 Platinum Mobo
HIS tech ATI 4850 512mb
Corsair 2gb 800bus ddr2
viewsonic VA2226w LCD
WD 80gb HDD

( dont mind the HDD cuz ill be changing tht too with WD Caviar black 500gb 32mb cache )

So guyz plz help me out & tell me wat to upgrade for the best performance.
& when im gonna upgrade any of those i hope ill get atleast 38+ FPS in crysis HIGH

From what I have read on this forum, the former and the present generation of nVidia cards outperms what is achieved from the ATi cards when it comes to Crysis.

So go for nVidia instead.
