I need some advice thanks More about : upgrade current system sharkbyte5150 a b B Homebuilt system February 27, 2013 4:52:43 PM Here's what I would do.... 1. Double existing RAM or get a new 8GB dual channel kit of DDR3-1333 2. 2GB 7850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The total will be less than $300 You already have a quad core CPU and jumping to the 965 will only give you .4GHz jump vs. massive GPU upgrade. I think you'll see a huge difference with more/better RAM and the 7850 that will last at least a few years. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
