craigsnepa posted a topic in Video Cards and MonitorsThis is the current PC, Antec Black usb 3 case, not sure the model, but moderate in size Asrock B75 Pro-3 M Motherboard Intel i5 3330 Quad Core 3.0Ghz with 3.2Ghz Turbo Boost (Locked Multi) Hyper 212 Cooler 24GB DDR3 1600Mhz 240GB Mushkin SATA III Solid State CoolerMaster 1000W PSU Currently Windows 7 Pro Installed w/ Windows 10 Notifier for upgrade when available. Samsung 27" LED Monitor (Just a 1080P 60Hz) I have been toying with the idea of tossing a video card in the pc, so I can play some pc games. I currently have been out of the pc gaming loop for quite some time. The last video card that I bought was a GTX 570, and that was around when I quit pc gaming. Looking to get back, so I was doing some research on some cards that caught my interest. I will be playing at only 1080P for the moment, and pretty much sticking at that resolution. Here are the top few cards that I have narrowed it down to: 1.GTX 970 4gb 2. R9 390 8gb 3. R9 280x 3gb I was leaning more towards the 970 more and more but here is the thing. I keep fearing that the current setup is going to bottleneck. mainly the CPU. A few of my friends told me not to worry about the CPU as an i5 at 3.0ghz stock should be more than enough. The funny thing about me even listing the 280x even though its an old card, is that a friend of mine offered to sell me his windforce gigabyte 280x for $100 bux. I'm not really looking to drop a lot of money on a new gaming card, as I keep thinking to myself, that I would have to upgrade the CPU, and at that rate, if I will be doing that, I should just buy an 1150 motherboard, and go for a 4790K or something along those lines. But I am trying to keep my budget lower. Not really looking to dump money on a whole new system build, as this one is totally new really inside and out. I apologize if I am rambling here, but I need some solid advice if I can please. The 280x seems like the best overall deal, but would it be worth going to the 390 or 970? Would any of these cards bottleneck the system at all? Is the i5 too weak to play the new games that are coming out? Thank you all so much in advance!
Hi guys I'm having a hard time to choose one of the GTX 660 cards. I'm inclined to choose one of these: MSI GeForce GTX 660 (N660 Gaming 2GD5/OC) and Asus GeForce GTX 660 (GTX660-DC2-2GD5) I know there's also a Gigabyte one but I think this two are better, right? I saw here in the reviews that the MSI is cooler, but the Asus is a little bit faster. I know that my PC isn't good enough to take full advantage of this graphics card but I have intentions of getting some new parts (CPU, RAM and motherboard) soon. I don't care about the faster one what I care about most is the durability of the card. It has to last the maximum time possible. And sorry for my bad English xD Thanks
I have a 1280MB MSI GTX 570 Twin FrozrII And a friend of mine is getting out of pc gaming and offered to sell me his Sapphire R9 280X Dual card for $310. He said he paid $500 for it, not sure what its really worth.. Is this a worthy upgrade? I7 3770 Non K (Stock Clock) 8GB DDR3 1600 2X 120GB SSD RAID0 Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Board CoolerMaster 1000W PSU
akmirdock posted a topic in System BuildsOk, I am running the following system... ASrock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard, I7 3770 (non k), 8GB DDR3 1600 (2X4 CL9), 1280MB GTX 570 TwinFrozrII Video Card, 2X120GB SSD In Raid0 (intel 520), Coolermaster 1000W PSU 27" Samsung LED Monitor 1080P Being that this is the NonK chip, I cant really overclock it, and the small amount that I can, isn't really worth it. I am selling off the GTX 570 and am in the process of doing research on a good Card to replace it with. I am trying to get back into the gaming scene, and with this card, its really showing its age on current titles. On FFIX ARR, I have to turn everything almost off in quality settings to run it at 1080P at 60FPS. I guess my real question is, should I keep using what I am using? OR should I maybe look into building something with the 4th gen i7 and upgrade the whole pc?? I also was thinking about going to AMD for an 8 Core, but from all the reviews and posts I have read, it doesn't seem if any if at all, an upgrade from what I am using. The parts are all about a year old since I got them, and everything works great, but should I be looking to build something newer? Any thoughts would be great. Thanks!
