Need some desperate HELPP!!!!

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm thinking about upgrading my current system. I play WoW casually and it's very annoying to play it with lowest setting and still having low frames.
But I'm not sure what graphic card I should choose from.
I have been using nvidia for all my computers and they have been good to me so I'm sticking with nvidia once again. Anyways I currently have a 8600gt 1gig and its not working out very well. As I mentioned, my system is pretty old and I was wondering if i'd get a card like 460gtx or 560gtx ti, will it get bottlenecked? If so, then i'm willing to get more ram about 4gig ddr 800 with good ocing capacity and cpu coolers to oc the system. What do you guys recommend? or should i just save my money and build a new system like a year later or so ? I'm thinking to spend about 200-400 if I decide to upgrade.
Please helppppp !!!

Oh man. No wonder you want a new GPU.

But from the looks of your rig, I think you might wanna buy a decent power supply too.

How much are you willing to spend?

Your CPU will be kinda bottomnecking your graphic card if you're getting 460, 560Ti, as well as your memory, best to upgrade to Window 7 64bitz as well


What i recommend is to upgrade your whole PC

New CPU, New Motherboard, new Memory (4GB+), new graphic card and new Window


If you're not planning to upgrade those above...

Just get 460, i think it should be ok. if you OC your cpu it may help a bit on your 460
