Keep Current System or Upgrade?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As you guys can see in my current build I have a X2 7750 @ 3.2Ghz and a 9600GSO 384MB. I wanted to know should I just upgrade to a 4870 1GB and a new CPU Cooler to get the X2 7750 @ 3.4Ghz and call it quits until next year or should I just start saving up now for a Quad-Core, SLI or CFire PC?

All I play is Mirrors Edge and Crysis for the most part.

I'd say either hold off an save for a bit, or if you HAVE to upgrade something, go for a 5770 (dx 11, new tech, and roughly the speed of 4870 from what I understand)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ech-_-14102860 169.99 for a sapphire, or knock about $10 off for an asus/xfx or HIS card

EDIT:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102858 sapphire @ 159.99 not sure what the difference is

I don't play Crysis that often anymore due to school work but by often I mean every minute of the day. On average now since school work I play from 4-11PM. Yeah I know, no life. I don't *have* to upgrade anything because I can run it on Medium perfectly fine. I just want a system that I can play a game without worrying about turning the settings down or finding the "sweet spot" to run them at.

I agree with this if you alot play games. if you don't then save up for down the road. I am not seeing a drop in prices on the 4800 serises, so I will get the 5770 myself when I have the money. the 5770 should also do really well in a cross fire environment. You might want to upgrade your power supply before then.
