I built my pc about 6 months ago and was using a 19" monitor until recently. I have a p5q-e MB, e8400 and 4 gigs of RAM with a 4870 512mb card. This was great with a 19" monitor, been able to run everything at max settings till I got a 24 inch dell monitor that runs in 1080. Now I have ltos of slowdown on max settings on games I play (a little in WOW, crysis, sins, fallout3.) what is my best and easiest option for an upgrade with the future in mind. Id love to be able to play starcraft2 and diablo3 on this thing when they come out and ahve it look nice. Will i be able to play everythign maxed out if I get another 4870 512? or should I sell the 512 for a hundred bucks and buy a 4870x2. Or is some other route better? thanks in advance.
yea i found it on newegg through my order, its been deactivated so they must have or are going to make a new model. But you are right its that model. I think my first 4870 came with a 8 to 6 pin converster so I may be able to pull it off.
