I may Just add 8 gb (4x2) Corsair XMS3 1600MHz cl9 2moro-- dirt cheap prices right now ! Advice?
no matter how much you overclock your going to be bottlenecked unless your going with an i7.
Its not your cpu its your monitor at low res your video card is capable of more fps but it forces your cpu to work harder to get it.
If your still on a 900p mointor imo that should be your next upgrade.
@Skyline385 those temps are high for anything less than a bench or stress testing not saying its going to damage your card but for what your doing it sounds a little hot.
Have you tried changing your TIM?
Do you get these temps in other games metro 2033 is going to stress the hell out of your card depending on settings?
If its only metro with all eye candy on then it might be ok but if you get these temps normal gaming there is a problem.
Also case ventilation is very important with these cards as they just dump hardware killing heat back inside.Edited by smoke420 - 1/14/11 at 10:22am
