Can you give me a percentage of your computer usage?

For example:
I use my computer...
20% Internet Browsing
5% Watching Movies

Ok, I had the impression you were video editing a lot. Go and get yourself a new GPU rather than a new CPU. At your resolution I would get:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-593-_-Product

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-506-_-Product

At that resolution, I wouldn't get anything lower than the two cards I just listed. If you have an EVGA GTX 460 you can use their step up programs to set up to the 570. Sorry, thought you had a 460

the thing is I edit videos only when i make videos and thats not been quite often lately.. but i'll edit a video say once or twice a month at most..

what about Gainward's custom GTX 570 'Goes Like Hell' Edition ? you should check it out.. http://vr-zone.com/articles/nvidia-g...n/10433-9.html

and maybe an oc version of the 580 if its out buy december 24th ish.. cause i'll be going to hong-kong and usually buy my pc components from there.. i have never faced any problems either.. and stuff is usually cheaper than newegg and tigerdirect by say10% at least..
post #17 of 23
If you have the money I would definitely recommend going with a 580 from whichever company you prefer. What games do you play?

as i said earlier my budget is round 750$ for the upgrade.. u think i could fit the card, case ( cm690 advanced II ) and water cooling h50 or h70 in the budget.. i think it should be possible..
post #20 of 23
With that budget I would switch to the i7 without a doubt. Get a nice mobo, a 570/560 (when it comes out), an H50, and the case. However, you will spend around $900 for the upgrade which is several hundred above your budget. As a proud cm 690 advanced II owner, any GPU will fit in the case.

With the 570=Around $950
With the 560=Around $850
