Hi. Been geeking out about this game for a week or so now..
Anyway, I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card for this.
I got a new PC last year [June 09] which, I think is still pretty good. But the Video card is kind of a bottleneck, and I'm looking to upgrade it.
I'm posting to ask about what level card my system can handle w/ the currant power supply and motherboard, and what kind of card would make good use of the processing and ram that I have.
Here is what I have:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz
8gb ram. 4x 2gb [viper brand]
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
GeForce 9800GT 1GB of Vram
Motherboard: ASUS P5QL/EPU
Power supply: Rosewill performance RP600V2-S-SL [600w I think. will link to it so people can see]
I can't SLI with this motherboard which is something I was very disappointed to find out. I left out other details that I didn't think were important. Feel free to ask though, if anyone wants to know anything specific about the system.
I may be able to get a good deal on a GTX260 896mb card [under $100]. So that's one thing I'm looking at. I'm also strongly considering going for something better along the lines of a GTX 460 or 465 [which I can get for $200 or 225 on eBay respectively].
I'd like to know the pro's and con's of these cards, and which ones might work better with my particular setup.
I'd like to upgrade my graphics card without switching out any other parts, so please let me know if any of the higher level cards would cause problems for my system. I'd like to get something safe but with performance that's in line with the processing and ram that I have.
