I'm in need of some tips about what to upgrade on my system. I play online games mostly, lately Aion and when I have like 200+ people on the screen my fps goes down. I feel I need more power, but at this point you think I should upgrade my cpu or get another 4870 and do a crossfire or take both options in consideration. What about the board? I play on native 1680x1050 and will stay on it, not planing on upgrading my screen now. So any help please? (:
About vcore under 1.50v, is possible with this board? I dont remember well but I think I read few months ago, there were problems with P5E and voltages or something the BIOS wont allow to change some values... need to check though. I really dont remember.
If I go higher, the system freezes and I believe it is the RAM fault.
, anyways the difference now is noticeable running at 3.2Mhz and stable!!
The board supports 1066 so I will get some better quality ram as Gskill at 1066Mhz.
Supported FSB Speeds are 1600/1333/1066/800 so, a processor change is in my plan too
but should I go for Core 2 Quad or just a Core 2 Duo, remember this is for gaming.
and this is my connection speed, I guess is not a problem at all right?
Once again thanks all for your great tips and comments, it is really helping me a lot.
I would go for a Core 2 Quad Q9550, it runs at 2.83Ghz and has four cores for quite a bit more longevity than a dual core. Your internet is great, so that certainly isn't a problem. Good luck with your future plans.
