  1. Does anyone know if there will be a significant increase in clock-for-clock performance? Sandy-bridge is amazing in that department, but I'm hoping Ivy will be even better.
  2. I will probably never SLI, I only have one PCI E slot on my mother board. I currently have an Antec 500 watt, but it's making me nervous how close I feel I would be cutting it, so that's why I want to upgrade.
  3. Sorry for the late reply, I was busy. I think i'm settling on either a 560 or a 560 ti, and would like a silverstone: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256071 I am always a little nervous when buy PSU's, because it seems the me like there is always a group of people who get bad ones. Do you think this one is good?
  4. okay thanks. Would a 600 watt power supply be enough for the new card?
  5. I would not like to spend over 100 since i'm looking to get a 200 dollar graphics card. How does the 6850 compare to the gtx 560ti?
  6. Okay thanks. i may just pick up that 750 watt like you said. Do you have any good brand recommendations? Also, what do you think that will have a significant affect on my power bill?
  7. It's an Antec Basiq (I'm pretty sure they spelled it with a q, for some reason).
  8. Okay, thanks. I wish i could build a new system, but there is no room to put it. You said it yourself, I have a decent build, I just want a little more power. Would I be good on power, or would I need to get a new power supply?
  9. Nothing is wrong with my current card, I am just looking for something with a little more power to it. And, yes, an option would be to save up a little more for a higher end card, but that may take a little longer than I'd like, and I probably would never use the power of a gtx 580 or something like that . I do like the idea of building a new rig, but I don't have any place to put it! Lol.
  10. Hello, I was wondering what video card i should get that would get me the best performance. I don't want to have to spend over $200, and I intend to play games like StarCraft 2, BattleField 3, Call of Duty, etc, on the highest setting possible. Here are my current specs: AMD Phenom II x4 955 2 x 2 GB 1333mhz RAM Radeon HD 5770 BioStar A780l3G Motherboard 500 Gb HD (5400 RPM) (Will upgrade eventually) 500 Watt PSU Thanks!
  11. If these are actually real, the specs look VERY good, and the price looks VERY good, but that's if their real
  12. I'm actually looking forward for Pile Driver. Its release date (Well, general release time anyway) is relatively close, and it's a good chance for AMD to get back in the game.
  13. I used PassMark until my free trial ran out. Now I use Nova Bench. It is pretty basic, but I like it.
  14. I use an AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE, however, the allure of Sandy Bridge is becoming harder and harder to resist.
  15. okay cool. I will consider getting a quad core later. The 68XX sounds like my best bet right now. Thanks for the info. My internet connection is Comcast economy plus, which I think is rated at 3 mega bits (Just did a speed test, got 3.10 mbps).
