Default Re: Upgrade for New Highend Games.

Switching video cards will make a huge difference and the 8800gtx is the second best card around. What kind of psu do you have?

If you only overclock a little it doesn't take much time at all. Overclocking isn't as risky as it used to be so you can just make little jumps test for a little while and when temps start getting close to max, stop overclocking and test for 8 hours or so. Not counting the 8 hour test it only took me about 1/2 hour to get my cpu from 2.0 to 2.8ghz. I ended up spending a bunch more time trying to get more but you can just skip that part.
