More about : upgrade build l0v3rboi May 7, 2012 5:40:31 PM CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Radeon 7870 Unless the parts don't fit the case or cable management is so bad that its overheating your rig, I don't see any reason to upgrade it. This way you can max out on the GPU and have the nicest graphics you can afford. Best solution J_E_D_70 May 7, 2012 5:58:32 PM Might want to see what happens with card prices this week if the 670 GTX hits the streets this Thursday as rumor implies. Will hopefully give you more options if you are hard stuck at $400.

Get the answer xep3r May 7, 2012 5:58:37 PM should i get a case too? i dont mind spending a little more, was liking the corsair cases.. or the coolermaster haf 932 advanced.. also what would be a good alternative to the 7870 on the nvidia side? l0v3rboi May 7, 2012 6:00:05 PM Nvidia, right now none. You have to wait for the newer 6xx series to come out. Unless you want to go all the way to the gtx 680. xep3r May 7, 2012 6:00:11 PM thanks jed, i didnt know about the gtx 670. did it mention the price range for it? l0v3rboi May 7, 2012 6:02:01 PM xep3r said:thanks jed, i didnt know about the gtx 670. did it mention the price range for it? As far as I know there is no price range for it yet. I'm guessing it would be right up there with the 7870 or 7950. J_E_D_70 May 7, 2012 6:04:53 PM Check here: I can't get these links to work.

I think you would probably get a good deal on a 580 now with the 6 series comin out. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
