Get the answer Best solution aznshinobi January 26, 2011 1:26:53 AM Share 6950 1GB has got to be in that upgrade, that'll run 250$. Then I recommend maybe a Phenom 925, get it off Amazon or Newegg. That's 120$ off Amazon. (You can get it off my site in my siggy) Then the rest for the monitor. So to recap. 250$+125$=375. Then get the monitor depending on price, if it's a bit overboard, then just get like a Propus for 100$ or get a Rana for 75$ (Though Rana to Regor has really no difference) brpeden82 January 26, 2011 1:32:48 AM in can spend $50 more dollars if i have to aznshinobi January 26, 2011 1:36:29 AM Then sweet, you got a 170$ monitor (super nice ones now a days at that price) 6950 1GB for 250-260 and and a solid Phenom. http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r... Better than the 560 for the resolution you want to play at. brpeden82 January 26, 2011 1:38:35 AM wilthe phenom II X4 925 bottleneck a 6950 aznshinobi January 26, 2011 1:39:19 AM Nope it will not. brpeden82 January 26, 2011 1:41:06 AM h much performance will it see compare to athlon x4 630/hd 4870 1gb machine is say crysis joelmartinez January 26, 2011 1:43:02 AM 30fps more, it's a rough estimate aznshinobi January 26, 2011 1:50:14 AM Ermm like joel 30fps, depending on settings brpeden82 January 26, 2011 1:50:25 AM Best answer selected by brpeden82. aznshinobi January 26, 2011 1:52:32 AM GL brpeden82 January 26, 2011 1:54:46 AM it was running about 45 fps on high on 1280x1024 in crysis joelmartinez January 26, 2011 1:56:32 AM What does GL mean? and for the fps you won't notice over 35fps for most people and 50fps for extreme people aznshinobi January 26, 2011 3:16:54 AM Oh yeah then it'll run just fine. The 4870 should run it like 40-50 FPS at that resolution. The 6950 would be for the 1920x1080 resolution. GL = Good luck. joelmartinez January 26, 2011 10:18:40 PM I was like what the h*ll does good-looking have to do with anything, I'm too much of an internet noob Can't find your answer ? Ask !
