New graphics card or new system

Hi all,

Its about time i spent some money and improved the power of my pc. The question is will buying a new graphics card give me the results i want, or do i need a whole new system? The results i want, is at least 60 fps on battlefield 3 on ultra settings at 1080p. Currently i get 25-30. So my current system is.......
Mobo: asus p5k se
Graphics card: Nvidia gtx 275
CPU: Intel core2quad q9400@2.667GHZ
PSU: 650w
RAM: 8gb (4x2) ddr2 800
windows: 7 ultimate 64 bit

    well I would just get a new GPU. That is a really good processor. I would think you could stay with that for at least a few more years and just get a 670 or wait for the 660ti to come out.
  2. Thanks, thats exactly what i wanted to hear. A gtx 670 is not even half the price of the system i was looking at. Looks like my gtx 275 is well and truely outdated haha

    Wait for the 660ti or get a GTX670.
    CPU is still good for another year or so (depending of the games you play, it might be your bottleneck in your system), but that should be your next upgrade.

  5. Just done some research and it appears the 660 ti will be released on the 16th of august. Im going to wait a few more days for some benchmarks to appear before i make a decision.
