I have the ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 mb. I was thinking of going up to a 1 gig. I am running a quad 2.66 prossesor with 2 gig of ram and XP. If I upgraded would I see much of an improvement? If so what suggestions do you have for a card? Thanks
What resolution do you usually game at?
I'm going to go out on a limb and say no. You'll be better served by grabbing another 2GB of RAM, and an after-market CPU cooler if you want to see performance gains.
What are your full system specs? What model 2.66Ghz quad?
Budget? What games are you looking to play? What screen res?
We can't really make any worthwhile suggestions without a little more information.
The games I am wanting to play are Starcraft II and Call of Duty Black Ops My specs are: Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P 35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Processor 2.66 GHz 1333MHz 4 MB LGA775 CPU BX80580Q8400 Ram: 2 gig OS: XP video card: XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670 512mb 500 watt power supply I try to go as high as I can on the resolution I have an 23 inch widescreen HD monitor Would my money be better spent upgrading to Windows 7 and then adding more memory. I am not looking to do a complete rebuild of my rig. Just thought I could do a little upgrading. Thanks again.
Yup, I'll second my first statement again.
If you put windows7 on , do it on your next system.
I would add more RAM, you may want a 1 gig vid card.
