GPU upgrade

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Trying to decide about an upgrade and wanted input.

I currently have 2 x radeon hd 6850 over clocked to 900mhz core and 1150 ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121419

I was looking at getting a 7970 with 6gb of ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202005&Tpk=Radeon%207970%206gb&IsVirtualParent=1

My screen resolution is 5760x1080

Also would I be better to keep what I have and wait on upgrade.

Are you having problems playing any of the games that you play on a regular basis? If your playing the games that you want to play id say wait it out a little. 2cents.gif

I would like to turn settings up in a few. I had to scale settings way down in battlefield 3. However I haven't been able to find much info on new releases.

I mulled CFX when I was using a 6870 and just ended up getting a 7950. The performance boost with this GPU is night and day. Go for it. thumb.gif

Also would the fx-8350 have any major gains. I have phenom x6 1100t @3.8ghz don't want to make GPU upgrade and CPU become the bottleneck.
