Hey guys,

I'm currently running;

AMD Phenom x6 2.8GHz 8 Gig Corsair Vengence Ram Nividia GeForce GTX 550Ti Asus rock n68 vs3 ucc

I'm looking at getting some better graphics. I know I need to upgrade my graphics card but would I need to upgrade my motherboard aswell? do different model motherboards handle the higher preforming cards bette? Can anyone remocommend a good mobo + graphics card combo to boost my graphics to top spec?

Thanks

T

I've been looking at the GTX 970.

Im not sure about bench marks etc - but I can play World of Warcraft on Ultra with little lag except when in a 25man raid.

With DragonAge Inquisition for example the optimising option on the setting puts everything on LOW when I run it through Razor Game Booster. I'd like to be able to enjoy the game graphically
