To Replace my GTX275, With What? - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Hey,

Storm, let me/us know how the SSD works out.

I'm in a similar situation right now so I guess I'll post this here. My current rig is in the sig.

Currently I got a GTX 260 Core 216, I didn't really want to upgrade anytime soon, I hate spending so much money for one thing. I'm wanting to play Tera Online when it comes out and have good frame rates in PVP, currently though (with me running the game on high no AA) I get major dips going into citys and populated areas especially where they all PVP like down to 15fps, elsewhere if I'm just in a party of say 5 killing things I get 35-50 fps which is pretty good for high settings I think.

I would like to upgrade my card too, and I already know my choices but I really wanted to wait for the next nvidia GPU which is taking really long to come out... Anyone know when that things coming out?

Anyway, my main concerns was this: What if I upgrade, and my framerate still drops? I'm mostly worried about it cause my CPU is a bit old. But Tera Online only uses 2 cores so I think it's ok...

Interested in picking up a SSD now, if it really impacts performance that much. Also, Tera reccomends 4GB of ram, which I got, do you think adding another 2GB is neccesary or since it reccomends 4GB I shouldn't need more?

Again, really hate upgrading. (mostly cause I'm poor lol) Actually I find it fun getting new parts, but the wallet does not.

Oh and my HDs are pretty new, their the black editions from WD, would a SSD still make that much of a difference in my FPS issues?

definitely will, I actually need to relearn how to overclock my processor too

Had to do a full CMOS reset maybe a year ago while doing some Spring Cleaning with a Friends air compressor,

For whatever reason if I move my Case aroudn too much she wont post, so I always have to do the long bleed to get her going again =*(

Like a dumbass I didnt save my OC Profile, so Ive not have the time or the patience to re learn this damn 1366 Overclocking... I still dont get it...

I will certainly let everyone know how this goes though once i get the SSD up
