Default Need help to improve gaming with this setup.

I'm using:

AMD Athlon 7750 Dual-Core Processor (2 CPUs) ~2.7GHz
DirectX 11
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
1440x 900 32 bit 60Hz monitor
This is my Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-034-_-Product
My MOBO is: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3686674

I'm planning on running games on Highest Quality that play on large scale battles, like 50 v 50 or more players on the screen at a time.

Is there something I'm missing to add, or should I replace my MOBO? What would be your suggestions?

Budget is about 100-500, depending on the time.

Thank you.

Most likely the video card in this case. My recommendation would be to upgrade to an HD5850 or HD5870, and get DX11 to boot.

He is running DX11 and I would think a GTX 260 would handle what you are trying to do. Have you tried it?

Edit: For $100 you aren't going to get a better card than a GTX 260

If it's 50 on 50 online you might also want to see how well your internet service will fare up to those standards. Also your CPU is going to bottleneck the GTX 260 and thats a pretty small resolution for it too.

Motherboard won't help you. You will need a better CPU as well.

imo I'd say the gtx 260 would be fine for what you want, is it the core 216 or 192? cpu may need upgrading either to match the gpu or for the game
