Well, do not know how I failed to follow through with this during the summer. But I am back with essentially the same question.
Like Graham said I am basically looking for ultra settings in bf3/farcry 3 type games, 60+ fps all times 1920x1080. Dont know whether my cpu/mobo are the culprit or my GPU. Everything is the same in my comp as it was during the time the thread began.
Im planning on getting this memory upgrade
, simply because I currently have G.Skill and have not had a problem, This SSD
, simply because they have a more-convincing front page ad than Samsung.
Would the DDR5 ram I am looking at be effective/compatible in my current motherboard (replacing my 2x2gb DDR3)?
My current rig is
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2 Hz 125w
XFX Radeon HD 6950 1 gb 256 bit
ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws series 2x2gb DDR3
Antec 550w power supply
So on top of the Memory and SSD upgrade I linked above, I am willing to spend around $400 for cpu/mobo or a nice gpu that I could crossfire or standalone (do not know which choice would be better)
Sorry for all the questions, and thank y'all for the help. This community is awesome.
P.S. I think it is awesome that I have gone from knowing squat about computers to building my own and somewhat comprehending specifications just based off my experiences here.
