At 1680x1050, your machine will be able to play Skyrim and BF3 acceptably well.
Make the jump on a 7000 GPU with three cheap 1080p monitors.
It means that the PCIe 3.0 cards will work at the PCIe 2.0 rate. You won't see a difference.nisten wrote:I've heard rumors that the new cards will be PCI-E 3.0... What does this mean if my mobo only supports 2.0?ImSpartacus wrote:Make the jump on a Radeon HD7000 GPU...

So my plan was set: purchase a Noctua cooler and OC my CPU to 3.8 GHz, buy another 2gb's of RAM, and replace my aging 4870 with a ATI 6950 2gb, which I would flash to 6970 specs. I am straying away from Nvidia because my mobo doesn't support SLI but it does Crossfire, allowing me to get another card down the line (or would you rather purchase a faster, single GPU solution? Micro-stuttering has me a bit worried). I was also considering an SSD, but seeing all the problems related to them at the moment I am hesitant.
