Looking to upgrade GPU

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my GPU and open to suggestions from everybody.

Current setup:
Amd fx–4100
Gigabyte 990fxa–ud3
8GB ram
64gb ssd and 1TB hdd
Sapphire 6870 1GB
1920 x 1080 monitor

I'm willing to spend $500 on a new card and I've been eyeing the 670 lately. As I said I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

Decided on a Sapphire 7950 3GB. Just wondering though what the difference between these two were.

Just different model numbers from the look of it. I'd go with the one that gives you Sleeping Dogs for free thumb.gif

The SAPPHIRE 100352-2L has a higher core clock. But the other one come with Sleeping Dogs. Amazing game.

I would pick up the one with the free game and just OC it.
