i got pretty lame GPU and im not really planning on getting one because im more into Console Gaming
i got this system
Core i3 540 Stock clock with stock cooling
Kingston DDR3 4GB ram
ECS H55H-M v1.1 motherboard
ECS 9500 GT 1GB ddr 2 [i dont really like this company thats how i got the pc from the store]
Sunpro 400w PSU
now i dont want to upgrade my graphics card because ill gonna need to upgrade my power supply
and maybe my motherboard and i dont have much money [i was planning on getting ASUS DIRECTCU 460GTX 768]
but now i decided that put my money on my xbox will be better choice for me.
yet i want to get the best preformence on my pc.
my question is -
should i keep my Old 9500GT [its from my old pc] oc'd
or try the Core i3 540 graphics?
is there a way to use em both [like some sorth of sli/crossfire?]
The 9500GT is still superior to any of intel's integrated graphics, even their HD 3000 seen on some of the Sandy Bridge chips. You're best off keeping the old card, if you don't plan on doing much PC gaming there probably isn't much reason to upgrade.
And no it is not possible to SLI a 9500GT with intel's integrated graphics. It is only possible to do a hybrid crossfire with AMD's integrated graphics combined with an AMD video card.
You should probably take a look at the chart before giving out wrong information.
The 9500 GT is ranked above the Intel HD 3000 graphics core.
However, that OP listed the Core i3 540, that doesn't even have the Intel HD 3000. It does not even have a graphics core. It use has the older GMA X4500 graphics core that is part of the Intel® H55 Express Chipset.
