With DF 2.0 near I was looking to upgrade what ive got so this time around i may be able to function during sieges a little better. Was wondering what the best bang for my $ would be on about a 300$ budget to upgrade this computer. I can spend another 200 or so in about 6months if need be. I am mainly considering mobo an CPU due to the fact I had heard several times DF is more CPU demanding them most games rather then GPU but that may just be garbage information. Here is my current set up.
Okay I have decided to upgrade my mobo and CPU now before launch so i have plenty of time to reformat my computer, install updates, get things running smooth ect. I will purchase a new Video card (most likely the 7950) when the black friday sales hit or christmas sales if its needed.
Heres my new question
is this a large enough of a mobo cpu upgrade to warrant the 300$? Real world gaming do you think it will help me to have settings on high versus what I keep it on now, (no shadows, lower detals). Also will either mobo allow moderate OC'ing? nothing much over say 4.2-4.4ghz.
