I've got a crappy old core 2 duo CPU, gigabyte GT 440, 2 gb of ( don't laugh ) ddr 2 ram. I was wondering, what should I invest 200~ USD into? should I get like quad phenom or .. once again.. a new graphics card? I don't know what could increase the games performance now, since I've seen video of people playing for example call of duty black ops on 1920x1080 max with gt 440, while I can barely run it @ 30 FPS on low resolution... is it all because of the CPU?
Heh, thanks for all the responses guys. The thing is, looks like I failed on the GPU once again, bought the non-gaming card -.-' And I got it like.. a few months ago, so it would suck if I would have to buy a new one. Anyways, is there some site or something that would show how bad my CPU would decrease performance with a good GPU? Because like I said, I saw people with the same GPU as mine play games on high resolutions with 60 FPS, while I get max 30 fps. My resolution is 1920x1080
if you want to play games on 1080p then buy gtx 560ti cost you u around 200$ and buy in asus made and overclock your cpu buy a cooler master 212+ cooler like 30$ and overclock your cpu to 1 ghz more then you will be able to play games on 1080p
