After I took 3-4 years sabbtical from gaming and seldom using Desktop. I just got interested again by playing BF3 in PS 3. I am planning to upgrade in about 2 weeks. I wish to know which is a Good GC for my system.
My plans to get a mid range GC which future proof for atleast next 2years. All though I still see that I need to upgrade my mo-bo and CPU which I have no plans to upgrade for the immediate future..I am going for good GC.
My choices are
Which one would one would work with current system(spec mo-bo)? B/W AMD/ATI and Nvidia. which is good GC?
My current config
Intel C2Duo 2.95 gigz
500 GB SATA 2.0 HDD
GC AMD 4350.
My budget is about $300. And I don't prefer AMD CPU's and ASRock mo-bo. My plan is to just get GC for now. And I am planning to get a Asus or Gigabyte with a intel processor with 8 Gb RAM later at the year end.
I just need to know whether these AMD cards would work in my existing mo-bo(G-41 VC). It has 1x PCI-e slot only.
the equivalent to a HD 7850 would be a GTX 480 or GTX 570 which sucks a lot of power and produces huge amounts of heat where as the HD 7850 uses lew power and stays very cool and overclocks like champ to match a HD 7950 ?
