Upgrade, What to expect?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hear is my current system.
ASUS M5A97 non evo Motherboard
AMD 960T x4 @4.0ghz
GTX 460 1gb
16 GB DDR3-1600
WD 500gb black
OCZ 750w psu if i remember right.
Corsair H60 cpu water cooler with 2x 120mm thermaltake fans in push pull.


i am upgrading the fallowing.

Video
XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

CPU
AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo)

now i play a lot of steam and origin games, and most of them i run max to med settings @1680x1050x60. i try to set them the nicest graphics i can while not going under 50fps.

will the new setup be a big improvement? or just a small one?

I also play supreme commander forged alliance, i notice my cpu getting maxed out even with core maximizer, and the game will start to slow down. will the 6 core cpu help this some?

i have already ordered the parts, i went with the highest i could afford, and went by specs and reviews and benchmarks.. they should be hear Thursday or Friday. i am hoping i did good. i also hope it will help my encoding times on DVDs. lol, but if not i can deal with it.

You should see 10-15% bump in cpu intensive titles and 50% bump in gpu intensive titles. That should be worse case scenario.
