Nvidia GTX260 (core 16)
So in my opinion, it should not take that much (extra) power to play it at full graphics....
Sure a GTX 560 is a real nice upgrade, but if RUSE is your only target... I think a GTX 560 might be overkill for RUSE, maybe even for your current CPU and PSU....
P.s. If buying a GTX 560... i really would like to advise you to buy the MSI GTX 560 Ti 2GB Twin Frozer II, it`s only a little bit more expensive... but has some real good overclocking potential for later...
Hope i could help! Good luck! thumb.gif
edit: typo

Thanks for the heads up, but note that the position of your card...


and my current...


and my soon-to-be...


and your suggestion...





The 260 is considerably more powerful than the 4670 and i am not aiming to play justRUSE. Theres also Anno 2070 thats out, and for once i want to run a new game on full. drool.gif
And i spose the 560 Ti is good, but i forgot to mention that i'm buying this-

(Exact same my nerd friend has and he already says he can play moi game on full already, and he has a 42 inch-me 32 =( )

Ill make the final decision after consulting the tech masters at headquarters though (moi dads in the military, big cheese)


And one more thing, i believe my board can support the card but just to be sure...can it?



And i cant seem to find the cards (mentioned 560)'s power reqs anywhere, any suggestions?
(WHy arent the links showing up? i used the link bbcode!)

WEll problem in hand .

Many RTS are taking advantage of Multi Core Gaming. Especially Supreme Commander.

You will be limited to Mid-High Settings with your rig.

if you throw a 560 onto that Processor, you will gain performance, but you WILL be bottlenecked.


First you need to understand what is actually Taxing your system with an RTS, simple, Terrain, And Unit Textures.

The More Visible on screen, and the more explosions, the GPU and System Ram you will need.

SUpreme Commander to run best requires a Quad Core to handle some of its Specials. and Heavily Suggest MINIMUM of 4GB System Memory.

Due to the Number of Textures Being Loaded, the Proper Choice is a GPU With a Large Memory Bit Interface allowing a larger Pipeline for the textures to be loaded. Especially if you have a decent resolution Monitor.

These are all reasons why I have chosen my Cards fairly carefully.

From Single Core AMD 3700 2.8GHZ + 7800GT - to AMD Opteron Dual core at 2.8GHZ + 8800GTS 640mb

To my Current rig with the GTX 275, which has a higher Bit Interface and larger amount of memory.

Which helps me now big time because my games of choice are RTS and MMO

Finally a fellow RTSer!

BTW, I am buying the-
ASUS 560 Ti
4GB additional RAM
and a new psu

Planning to do it like so-
ASUS 560 ti->New mobo->Quad core->560 ti SLI


Gone surprisingly knowledgeable in this after 'bout an years worth of crawling through the net in 1 week.

if you overclock the E7300 to 3 Ghz and add 1gb ram, you might get an additional 5 to 10 fps in some games.

Why dont you check if your mobo supports a Q9550? there's no need to change mobo if you could just upgrade to a good 775 quadcore
