Sooo... I had a couple of question... im looking for it to be able to handle some high end gaming, with the occasional time spent on multimedia.
With the set-up currently I was thinking there are probably a few areas with which minor changes need to be implimented..
ie. network cards
Would a substitution with the network card be of a vital impact from a LAN network (gb or 10/100) to.....
(1) Intel Pro 10/100/1000 Network Card * *
(2) Killer K1 - Online Gaming Accelerator - w/ 333Mhz Network Processing Unit + Lag & Latency Reduction Technology * *
(3) Killer M1- Online Gaming Accelerator - w/ 400Mhz Network Processing Unit + Lag & Latency Reduction Technology
Would this have a dramatic increase in overall performance and quality?
Also if there are any other minor changes to the processor,motherboard which anyone thinks may be able to allow for an increase in a relatively smooth play and high performance please make any suggestions. Trying to reach an FPS of 150 -200.
primarily cod 2,4,5 & 6
