I recently put in a Radeon 7870 graphics card into my computer but I haven't really seen a drastic increase in gaming performance up from the 5750. Could the problem be that my processor and motherboard are holding it back? I have a store bought Dell Inspiron 580.
My current motherboard is the Dell Inc. 0C2KJT A00
My current Processor is the Intel Core i3 CPU 550 3.20GHz
If the motherboard and processor are holding it back I am willing to buy some new ones. If you guys could recommend me some nice MOBOs and CPUs that would be great. Thanks
If the game already ran nicely you don't expect to see any changes because our eye is not sensitive enough to detect it. Instal a more demanding game like crysis 2 or far cry 3. I'm sure in these games you will see the difference.
