Here's my general specs: MoBo:Asus M4A79 Deluxe Chip: Phenom II X4 940, slight oc to 3.4GHz Memory: 8GB DDR2 Graphics:Radeon HD 4870X2 HD: OCZ Vertex 2 SSD Main Display: 24" Samsung 1920X1600
The question is should I just do a graphics upgrade to extend the life of the machine or wait another year or so and do a whole new build? So far the rig has held up well against most titles I have thrown at it. I play a lot of Planetside 2 and to get playable framerates I must scale back to Medium and play at 1920 x 1080. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but I wonder if I can still utilize the "Dragon" platform with a newer card and get better performance. Or will the Phenom be the bottleneck and not allow a newer card to shine?

Wait another year and do a completely new build. Save the cash so when you do build one you will have a beast of a system, which is what yours used to be. Cheers

Thanks for the response. I was leaning toward holding off another year. Just thought I would see what others opinions were.
