What do I upgrade with my current build to play Battlefield 3 & Skyrim at MAX setting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now on BFBC2 I lag a bit at max, but that game was a port so I dunno.

Don't want to spend too much, don't wanna replace my MOBO for bulldozer. I think a x6 will pricedrop soon and be enough CPU for these games

I don't know if skyrim gunna be harder to run then BF3 but I usually use only about 8x AA

I'm on 1680x1050 don't plan on changing anytime soon

So I guess I'm looking at a new CPU & GPU dunno if I need more RAM

I think a new video card will give you the most bang for your buck. You can get an open box 6950 for $200. Hexacore doesn't do squat for games so far.

Try overclocking that gtx 260, let say 650mhz.
