GPU or CPU Upgrade Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 27, 2010 11:25 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Ashley - Aitch January 27, 2010 8:07:10 AM Hi there lets get to the point. I have an E8400 @ 4GHz Asus p45 P5Q-E 4 GB of ballistics ram @ 991MHz 300GB Vraptor HHD 1GB 4870 @ 810/1000MHz. It runs really cool at idle (25Degs) and still really cool at load (45-50Degs) so cooling is not a problem. I have about £450 to spend and I was wondering if I would would get better gaming performance from an i5 750 bundle or getting a ATI 5870 with the current bundle. Please help guys.
