my comp has been for like 4 years alr so i was thinking of upgrading my graphics so i can support games like starcraft 2 at ultra settings without problems or lags :x seems a bit too much but i'm financially tight :x
my current comp specs:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66Ghz
RAM: DDR2 2GB + 1GB
Current graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE
Display: 1600 x 900 (32-bit) (75Hz)
so yeah i was looking for sth like a nvidia card and i'm considering the GTX 260 (cheaper) and the GTX 460 (quite expensive in my region) i dont overclock my CPU nor GPU cause i'm not really good at it so yeah.. What do you guys think? other suggestions for graphics cards are welcomed i just wanna support the newer games at their better settings hopefully starcraft 2 at ultra THANKS IN ADVANCE
Thatbit dangerous... dont you think. I wont suggest running the newer cards to be run on the generic PSU's. I would say get VX550 from Corsair and and HD5770. But before that would like to know your complete budget for the upgrade?
i'm definitely changing my PSU because almost every card requires more than my PSU capacity. i was looking at the 5770, but i realised performance wise, the gtx 460 in itself outperforms the 5770? is that true? i'm looking for a total budget of probably about S$400 (in Singapore dollars though) :x
currently my country is selling the 5770 at about $269 SGD and the 460 is $389 SGD which is a major difference. hmmm so the 5770 is much more preferable for me thanks oh and the PSU looks AWESOME THANKS D
haha okay thanks i'll consider the 5770 oh btw, which do you recommend for the 5770? MSI, ASUS or XFX :x there seems to be only these 3 here
oh and if i happen to be able to get the 460 on bargain, will it work on my comp specs? (assuming i changed my PSU) will it run smooth?
Awesome and as for the graphics card. Asus always comes first in my opinion, send me the links and i'll look them over. it's in english? correct? and if not, send me the model numbers and I'll have a go over.
EDIT: as for the 460, it will run fine on that 550w modular;(or similar) Just make sure the Amps on the 12V rails are correct.
