With a few games coming out for PC that I am really interested in, I found myself playing on medium settings in beta. I do not like medium. I've been spoiled with top graphics in (almost) every game for the passed few years and now it's time for some upgrades!
My current rig is:
: ECS G33T-M2
: Intel Core2 Duo E4500 - 2.20gHz
: 4GB 240pin (not sure on brand)
: Western Digital 320gb 7200rpm
: nVidia GeForce 8600GT 256mb (XFX)
Power Supply Brand/Wattage
: 450W - it came with my tower, not sure of the brand unless it's the same as the tower's which is XION
: Windows 7 64-Bit
What I'm looking to do is update my graphics card and motherboard (or replace it, a couple ports fried somehow
I'm looking for something along the lines of this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150478
for a card...any suggestions or anything is appreciated.
But my real concern is the motherboard. I have no idea what to do in this realm, my father (this was 5ish years ago and I had no idea what I was doing) pretty much got everything and I paid him when I originally got the computer and it is the only part I haven't touched...
What exactly do I need to look for with new motherboards? Obviously compatibility with my stuff but what other things? Or if you're feeling really generous...what board should I get?
I don't really have a max budget.
Thank you in advance!
