hi to all
i have to buy a new graphic card and i have narrowed my choices between nvidia 560ti or gtx 570.i want to upgrade from 9400 gt as i was getting too low fps on games like gta episodes around 8 fps and dirt 2 9 fps. but i have doubt whether these graphic cards will support my motherboard and ram?



System details

processor - intel core 2 quad q8200
motherboard- intel DG31PR
RAM- 4GB DDR2
GRAPHIC CARD -9400 GT 512 mb
monitor - samsung b 2230 full hd monitor

will i be able to play these games above 60fs after upgrading???????????

as long as you have PCI-E x16 on your motherboard then you're good to go. system ram does not affect on what kind of graphic card you use. having said that what is your psu? both card you mention will use a lot more power than your current one. other than that i'm sure at stock clock your processor will bottleneck 560/570

not necessarily an i7. as long as the processor does not bottleneck your gpu then it is all good. but you might have to upgrade your motherboard and ram as well. if you don't plan on getting into all that then maybe you can look something lesser such as GTX460 1GB (non SE edition). just overclock your current the cpu to eliminate/reduce the bottleneck. the GTX460 have plenty of horse power to drive 1080p monitor. just don't expect miracles to happen :na:
