What's your budget? swifty_morgan November 7, 2012 3:44:41 PM you're right. the card is the weakest link. don't worry about whether or not your other hardware isn't "good" enough for a real upgrade. I run a q9550 with a 6950 and things couldn't be better. from the 6870 on up........ a card with 2gigs of vram will give you great benefit. pick one. ( and before somebody says you only game at 1680x1050 and don't need 2gigs.......... well in yer eye maggots ) Related resources trying to choose graphic card for my new QHD monitor - Forum is it worth buying new graphic card - Forum Did I make a mistake buying a new computer with an integrated card? - Forum can my motherboard can run my new graphic card - Forum New graphics card PC wont boot - Forum Can't find your answer ?
