Cpu Upgrade

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking to improve the framerates of my games, i currently have a Pentium D 2.66ghz overclocked to 3.2ghz and a 7950gx2, i am looking to be able to play my games at my monitors native resolution which is 1920x1200 but i have to lower the detail in most games, in Test Drive Unlimited i have to use the low settings with no HDR or AA just to get a smooth playback, can anyone recommend which would be the best upgrade to make, my cpu or my graphics card.

Thanks

Get Core 2 Duo E6600. You've got one of the best VGA cards but I advice you to get an eVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB.

Cheers
