Thinking about upgrading video card and/or proccessor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Right now I have a pentium D 830 series, 3.0ghz. And I have a 7800GTX card. I'm thinking of getting a new video card and proccessor. Might only get one or the other for now. Just thinking if I should even consider getting a video card with DX10 coming out fairly soon. Think its worth it, or should I just stick with the 7800 for now and get a new cpu.

lemme know guys, thanks!

I'd go for a new CPU, your 7800GTX is plenty fast for most of games today and possibly tomorrows
