The way that you could upgrade your PC is get a quadro/firepro or a crossfire 7970. Next time you should ask us what you should get.

Ask ! Get the answer undercovernerd6 October 7, 2012 12:06:07 AM Neither nvidia purposely crippled their gpu in computation [rendering] to force you to by a corporate card for rendering. ATI cards do very well in rendering hence the previous post about a 7970.

You can confirm it is cpu based by looking at gpu usage in something like afterburner. http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm BTW they are not crippled in opencl nor directx. Although radeons do tend to do well in more opencl benchmarks. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-gef...

Overclock your cpu for better render times. If you need help with that, we are here to help. Share bustillomoreno October 10, 2012 4:48:05 AM k1114 said:So why would gpu computing matter.
