Hi there, I'm looking for some assistance in choosing how best to upgrade my gaming experience. I'm currently sitting on a 24 inch 1080p samsung monitor and beside it a 19 inch that I use for web browsing and video playback, I never use it in games.
My specs are:
XFX Radeon 6870 1gb GPU
8150 Bulldoxer 3.6ghz 8 core CPU.
Kingston 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz x2 RAM.
Asus M5A78L/USB3 Motherboard.
PSU- a CIT 750 watt, I intend to upgrade this as soon as possible, people tell me I should avoid cheap brands, so I'm getting a corsair.
I have £250 to spend on upgrading this system, what do you guys think?
I'm looking for any suggestion, be it new screen or graphics card, but mostly my intentions are gaming. I want something that is going to impact my framerate or visuals substantially.
Running windows 7 atm, windows 8 caused some problems so I ended up going back.
I've clocked onto an OCZ 500watt PSU, seems like a reliable brand and there's positive reviews.
I tend to play the most intense games on the market, mostly shooters, simulators or MMO's. ATI 7950 looks like a decent card.
The 7950 would have been my suggestion although there is nothing wrong with your choice of PSU can I suggest perhaps going for 600-650W as that will a bit of headroom and your PSU will need two 6 pin connections for the HD7950 GPU.
