Will my computer handle future game at ultra, and if not what would you change?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm getting way behind on the hardware area with my time consuming work so i'd like to ask how you think my computer would hold up, and what to change.
I'm currently running with the following;

HP2009V Monitor @ 1600x900
AMD FX 8120 @ 4.4 GHZ (Can reach 4.6 with no issues)
Ram HyperX 1600 8GB
Caviar Blue HDD
Sabretooth 990 FX Motherboard
Geforce GTX 770 GPU OC
Various high end peripherals (mice,keyboard,headphones)
Closed cooling H100 for the cpu

Your verdicts? Thank you.

On Ultra, really depends on the game. The card you have should be good for a few years but ultra settings will outdate it fairly quickly.

I'd get a higher resolution monitor before investing in a faster GPU.

I guess it's time for a monitor update, mine's starting to have those ghost like white waves running down the screen. (If someone knows why this happens please fill me in.)
I was hoping for around 2-3 years, at my economy it would allow the exchange for another high end card
But the games are not limited since i play close to anything and occasionally battlefield3 and 4 with the hubby.

edit - would there be any noticeable performance gain from 8120 to a 8350?

That 8120 should be changed to an 8320, AMD's current generation seemed to be a pretty decent improvement over the last.

EDIT: Come to think of it, Isn't a 7970 just as good as a 770 for a lower price? If you want the Physx or CUDA then 770 all the way but for just gaming/ open CL 7970 would be a good choice.

I already have the 770 - there's no noticeable difference between the cards unless you start benching.
Since i use the pc mostly for games i wanted the physx for that little extra physics (:

I guess i should get the newer cpu, you are right about that - thanks
