i currently have an Athlon II x2 250 3.0 Ghz,
4Gb ddr2, 450w cooler master psu, with a 512mb 9800gt. i am wanting to upgrade my video card. i play games such as WoW, Dead Space 1 and 2 and a host of "bundle" games. while i am truley suprised that i can run dead space and WoW at 1920x1080 and high settings with decent fps i still feel that my card is "struggling". my budget is around $100 or so (i can spend more if needed). one of my concerns is cpu. i feel like anything more than say a gts 250 will be bottlenecked. i do not have a preference over nividia or amd ... i just the best i can effectly use with my againg hardware. i will be building a new pc in about 6 months or so and this one will be given to my son as his "gaming" pc.
