I currently have the ASRock A55M-HVS APU(HX Version) mother board. I want to really upgrade the graphics card for better FPS and graphics in games such as Diablo 3 and Counter-strike Source. I'm currently getting 30-60 FPS! Right now I have the AMD Radeon HD 6550D (ASRock) and the AMD Radeon HD 6450. What can I do to really upgrade my graphics on a $100-200 budget? Atleast to where I get 150+ FPS in CSS.
Mine? It's a Phenom II x4, mixed with the fact that I have no money and just don't care to much I have a real cheap system. I run a Gt 220, and have a 7770 coming in the mail tommorow to finally replace it with.
no you but i bet it couldn't get any cheaper than mines lol ?
I'm not too computer savvy, so bare with me! What's the maximum fps which coincides with screen refresh rate?
Out of those cards, which would supply the best graphics? Are the graphics determined by power, that is?
there are two things that determine what you see generally
Screen Refresh rate: How many times the screen refreshes
FPS: or frames per second, which is how many times an image is created per second
For instance, you can have unlimited fps, but the screen refresh rate can only display a set amount of frames as that's how many times it refreshes the screen, refresh rate is dependent on monitor. it ranges from 60, and intervals of 15 usually(60, 75, 120 etc) effectively capping the frames you can display, so fps over 150 for example are moot. to a basic human eye, 60 fps is the level where most of the details can be seen.
