Tags: Graphics Cards Processors Graphics Product Last response: March 15, 2011 9:43 PM in Graphics & Displays Share fools79 March 13, 2011 10:04:14 AM So I have been soliciting ideas for different upgrades to my current Phenom II x2 555be & Hd6850 build, and I have come to the conclusion that a better processor and moderately better graphics card will be perfect for my needs. So my processor upgrade is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And my choices for a new gpu are: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I really like both cards but am torn between them. Just need a little help choosing, thats all.
