Re: upgrade phenom PC
OK, very cool - well see on the 8th or a week afterwards if the 7970 or the 280X will be better for the money. I was able to get his system working pretty well- all his drivers updated, windows updated, etc. -( yes, I know that we should re-install) he did play BF4 beta with low-med graphic settings yesterday - so I would say with a upgraded GPU he should be good to go. I assume the PSU is fine as it is pushing a 2-3 year old 5770 which I think requires more power than either the 7970 or the new R9-280x will require.
