I'm thinking of upgrading my graphics card once I have all my hard drives sorted out.
I currently have the 8800GTS 640 and have since I built the PC. It has served me well, but for Crysis 2, and Portal 2 (Battlefield 3), I just feel like upgrading it to max everything out (Portal 2 probably won't need all that much
I'm thinking of either the AMD Radeon 6950 or the Nvidia 660Ti.
I'm pushed more towards the 6950, but I'm wondering whether CUDA will be worth keeping Nvidia for, but they both have the same kind of performance.
My CPU however is the Q6600, so in terms of bottle necking, how bad will it be? Will there be any point upgrading the card to something of that spec?
I tried overclocking my CPU last night from 2.4GHZ to 3.2GHZ (I haven't changed my sig in a while), and for some reason, even though it could reach that speed when I first got it, now, I set it to that and run a Prime 95 test, and it resets. However Windows, etc boots up fine.
I set the values to 400mhz at x8 multiplier, which also kept the memory at 1:1:1 ratio too of 800mhz.
