I think my videocard is junky nao !

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, i built this system about 4 months ago, and its starting to seem as if i need to get another vid card to run in sli, you can check my system specs below, but , in say bad company 2, my fps is sketchy now. I get like 30-50, which is just not enough to keep me happy, it runs sketchy, choppy, it kind of blows my mind that this card cant keep up. should i buy another for sli or just buy a 500 series card now?

I assume you've tried latest drivers and overclocked it?

If so and it's still not enough, what I'd do is see how much cards like yours are selling for and then compare that with the cost of a newer card. Go the cheaper road.

Yes, everything is updated, drivers, everything. I just feel like this card is on the weak side, i hear sli will make it perform really well, but i was just wondering if making it a physix card would be better, and just getting a 500 series card.

I have the same gpu and my cpu in the sig, and I have no hiccups in BC2 on max graphics. My card is oc'ed at 870 core but nevertheless you have a better cpu. No reason why you should not be running maxed out with decent fps. Also if you really feel like it, get another 460. They run pretty cheap these days and you will surpass a stock 580.

Edit: and no, you wont notice much difference with a physx card.

Just go for SLI, GTX 460 now is pretty cheap.
But if avoiding that you won't be satisfied with those SLI cards, just go for 560Ti, the one I prefer to buy is GIGABYTE's 560 SO, core clock 1G is so fantastic and fascinated.
