My current set up:
Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150462
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341016
So, my plan was to upgrade my PC sometime in october because that is when BF3 and SWTOR are going to be released. However, to cut a long story short, a series of events has caused me to want to up my time schedule.
In particular I'm looking at getting a graphics card, specifically this:
The ratings on there (and newegg) do concern me a little. Are they justified? I like XFX because of the lifetime warranty.
I want to upgrade to play a new level of games very smoothly...so first question or two.
1) Do I NEED to upgrade anything other than the graphics card? I am happy to just buy the graphics card, install it, and go. The thing is, my processor isn't top of the line. So I am wondering if I should upgrade that as well.
2) Will my PSU hold up a more powerful card along with the rest of the system?
Basically, I'm wary that shoving an amazing card into an average rig isn't going to work. However, if it will work and games (BF3 specifically) will work well on it, then I couldn't be happier.
Thanks for your time
