Finally decided (by decided I of course mean my last one finally bit the dust, but I digress ) it's time to do an upgrade on my video card, and really like the EVGA GTX670 FTW for my purposes. My question is, will my current rig handle it or is it too outdated?
Nah, that I7 940 is very much stock, and completely discontinued like a month after I bought it ><. I haven't overclocked it 'cause I'm not that familiar with OCing, and I've always been told it's a good way to chew up a 350-400 dollar chip if you don't know what you're doing . I really should read up on it, since it sounds like a pretty easy way to get a performance boost.
It's good to know that the GPU would work, I was concerned based on it being DDR5 and PCIe 3.0. My board's memory is DDR3 and the PCIe slots are 2.0.
