Hey guys i wanted some help with a little uprgading. My current rig should be down there in my sig vvvvv :D . So my question is what can i upgrade that will have the most impact on gaming with $300? I was thinking replacing the 460 with a 7850 would that be the best bang for my buck or is there better options?

The 7850 is the best 250 dollar upgrade with the other 50 i would get a 60 gb ssd for your os

I'm in the same boat with my gtx 460, the 7850 is a nice upgrade but I haven't found my 460 in need of more unless you play many shooters ( I stick to rpgs). Also if you do play shooters a nice 120hz monitor wouldn't be a bad choice, but then again you would probably need the gpu upgrade (double edged sword).

I am patiently waiting for the 660ti if not then the next gen of either ati or nvidia.

Need a new case (get some great airflow in your system)? Or maybe an SSD?

Thanls for the response the 7850 seems to be the best way to go now since theres no gtx 660 yet. could i get a ssd for $50? last i saw they where more in the $100s for a 32gb but i have not looked in a while....

Haha ya i play lots of shooters games like AVP and metro 2033 will drop me to 20-25 fps and i already use a 120hz HD TV. Im good on the case and maybe a ssd not sure if that would really increase my gaming abilties......
