Okay, long story short, I downloaded The Witcher 2 and found out that it's kind of rapeing my system. I could run everything from last year with no problems but this years games are a different story.
Here's my system;
CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme Qx9650
GPU: GeForce 260 GTX
RAM: 4GB of DDR2 @ 400mhz
MOBO: Asus P5K-E
Resolution: 1360X768 but that might change
Basically my question is; What should I do? What will give me the biggest performance boost for gaming (thats all I do with my computer)? Should I put another 4GB of RAM and a better GFX card? Or should I upgrade my CPU,MOBO,and RAM?
I'm only looking to spend about $500USD (maybe a little more, it just depends)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Yeah, I have the fastest quad core for the 775 socket (at least from what i've been told) which is clocked at 3.00ghz. I hear it's a good processor for overclock but I just don't know how to unfortunately.
I think I will double the RAM (couldnt hurt) and pump some steroids into my GFX card and buy a better monitor. There, Problem solved.
Dual 6850's are roughly the same price of a 570, which do you think would be a better buy for me? I know dual V-cards give more horsepower under the hood but you said the X-fire runs slower on my Mobo.
