What component to upgrade? Higher end system
Nov 28, 2012, 2:15 PM
I was wondering what component I should upgrade on my current system.
This is 100% for gaming - WoW D3 CoDs etc
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67M-PRO
HDD: 128 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD + 2TB 7200(just for movies,pics)
RAM: 8GB OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800
VIDEO: ATi Radeon 6870
I'm assuming that the video card is the lowest of everything, I could always overclock a bit but I was getting BSOD a year ago when I tried.

If your frame rates are over 40 and it's stable with no lock ups or bluescreens, I wouldn't upgrade anything.

No the Radeon 6870 is still a good card. If you want to upgrade something I'd say add a second while you can.
