I recently purchased a GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) for my rig I built back in May 2008. The reason I am getting it is because I am getting 10 FPS in SWTOR in Warzones and I figured a GPU upgrade would help. Now, my question is will the card be significantly bottomnecked with my current rig? If so, would you recommend a new rig all together or what components would you recommend I should upgrade. Also, is there a significantly performance loss with a PCI E 2.0 card on a 1.0 MOBO? Thanks!
Thanks for the feedback. I was afraid that would be the case considering I build this rig 4 years ago. The good thing is I haven't used the card yet, so I am going to RMA back to newegg. Going to save up for a new rig since that looks to be my only option.
