Hey guys,

My computer specs are as follows:

Mobo: Asus P5K-Premium
CPU: E8500 @3.16 Ghz
RAM: 8GB
Current Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD4870

I'm currently just trying to update my Graphics Card. For the most part I just use my PC for MMORPG's, and with some new ones coming out I wanted to upgrade my Graphics card.

I wanted to spend around $200 on a new GPU.

Any suggestions would be awesome and truly appreciated!

I don't see that an upgrade is necessary if you are going to play MMORPGs. The graphical requirements are usually quite low...Unless your framerates are very low?

Does it matter that my P5K Premium is a Black Pearl Edition? I bought my system off CyberPowerPC.com about 4 years ago. I was just hoping there wouldn't be some sort of hardware incompatibility.

No, it does not matter whether it is the p5k or p5k Black Pearl Edition.

Awesome, thanks so much.

Yeah I had wanted to upgrade my PC so I could play on High graphics with good framerates. I just put in some brand new RAM to put it up to 8GB which helped tremendously. I like my CPU a lot, it seems to get the job done, and I thought that the next best thing I could do was upgrade my GPU. Thanks again for the help!

I have the exact same 560Ti, you will love it. That particular model is also a great model to overclock too ;)

Also this one is great for u. Because u don't have the fastest CPU anymore, this one is great too. Quiet and newest out there. Low power requirements.

Great power and even cheaper. With future proof PCIE 3.0 with plenty of power.
