I currently have an Amd phenom I x4 2.5ghz / 4gb ddr2 800mhz / geforce 8500, but I'm looking to upgrade to a 95w 6 core/ddr3 setup in the future, what gfx card would you recommend as a future proof upgrade for my system? I'm looking for 1080p graphics and good to high gfx sethings..
I think you should wait for the upgrade build you mentioned. However, you can buy a new graphics card for your current computer, and swap it in the new build rather than buying another new one when you upgrade to a new build. I would recommend a 7850, which can play games high-ultra without anti-aliasing. Good luck!
