EDIT display is 1360x768! - My tv is a 1360x768 and I have been thinking of upgrading my graphics card and wonder where my display resolution fits in with benchmark tests and what graphics card will allow it to be optimised, on as cheap a budget as possible, and work reasonably well for another 2 years possibly.
The cpu is a Core2 quad 6600, memory 3GB (no point with 4GB when OS wil eat much of that up in using graphics card) and the OS is Vista Home Premium 32bit. Current card is an Nvidia 8800GT. The psu is a Coolermaster 650 watt. Would I be as well of with a Radeon 5550 as I would a 5750? Would a 5830 be going overboard?
I think I may be able to upgrade my cpu at some point too but dont know if there is another cpu worth upgrading too without a whole new motherboard and cpu type.
HD5770 is good choice. Weaker cards wont be much of an upgrade over your 8800GT. Your cpu is still fine, especially if you overclock it.
Tried overclocking it theand even at 2.6mhz and especially at 2.8 the system wasn't stable. I bought a good fan and heatsink and psu especially to do this but I think the memory is too cheap maybe. I dont know though and it would be too much a gamble for me on the crap income i have to try it out.
