One problem I have faced is that I know just about nothing regarding motherboards. I have read that combining the GTX 460 with a hybrid-SLI capable nVidia motherboard will improve performance. Is this a worth while purchase and what models of motherboards would suit my CPU and GPU ideas?
I am a bit of a newbie in computer hardware so any advice is greatly appreciated.
I have a monitor with a resoultion 1680 X 1050 (it is a few years old)
My current PC is about 3-4 years old but was a good PC at the time, it was a pre-built system not made especially for gaming but is still OK.
I play games such as:
COD black ops
Dragon age 2
and soon Crysis 2
My current graphics card (Geforce 8600 GT) can not play any of those games any higher than about medium settings.
As I am not very experienced in computer hardware I don't know what I can salvage from my current rig. I can list all specs later if needed.
