Best possible upgrade
Sep 24, 2011, 1:27 PM
I currently have the following system:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE
RAM: 4x2GB DDR2-1066 Kingston HyperX
MB: ASUS M4A78 PRO
PowerSupply: Eurotech V70 Modular PRO 900W
On my free time I love to play games like Crysis, Fallout 3, The Sims 3, UT3, etc...
I'm looking to find the best upgrade now possible for my system so I can be assured I'll have a newest game power play system on my hand for the longest time possible.
Only one constraint:
I'm not looking to replace the components I already have just adding.
So in conclusion I here asking for your advice on what to buy to create the best play system for the longest time have as base what I already have.
Thanks in advance!

A discrete GPU is what you need, before I recommend one what is your budget?

GTX580 is within your grasp then but maybe not needed based on your monitor resolution. Which is?
This can be helpful as well

I've missed that point...
It's a TV-Monitor Samsung SyncMaster TA350 FullHD capable of going up to 1920x1080.

An euro 250 card GTX560TI or HD6950 1GB would handle that fine but it is a question how much you want to spend. (I recommend that you look through the article I linked before)
