So I am trying to decide if it is worth it to upgrade my MSI HD 4850 512 MB VC, I have starting having problems with it I believe overheating. I picked up a PNY GTX 550 TI, 1 GB card new for $130 today but havent opened it yet. It was kind of an impulse buy. I game a little and play all the MW games and like to watch HD movies.
I know I can also swap the 550 out for a HD 6770. Was wondering what everyones thoughts were.
Phenom II 940 8 GB Ram W 7 64-bit 19 inch Hannspree
since you already bought it then you better keep it. GTX550 should be a bit faster than 6770. performance wise it should be like this:
4850 < 6770 < GTX550
Is there any inherit danger to running the old 4850 until it completely goes out? I can not think of any but wanted to check here
