Hi,i am looking at getting a AMD(ATI) 6950 in the near future,plus a AMD 965,my current specs are a AMD Phenom x4BE 2.6Ghz overclocked to 3.0Ghz and two 4870`s in crossfire.My question is,would i see a big difference in performance,i currently game at 1920x1200,and more or less most current games run fine,but i have noticed in games such as Metro 2033 my rig has been found wanting.Is Directx 11 and the more eye candy worth the upgrade?
Many thanks Andy

the cpu upgrade would make sense then. check the manufacturer mobo site for CPU support and BIOS updates. you can also save some cash by getting the phenom II 955, an easy OC and you have an instant 975.

Thanks for the quick reply,so,i am guessing that you recommend upgrading my CPU but leaving the GPU.I take it thatDX11 is not worth the upgrade.
Cheers Andy.
