Re: Building Gaming Desktop - Advice please
Well, I really won't be able to compare the two computers because I sold my previous desktop about 1 year ago. I have been running gaming laptops ever since, so the performance increase will be huge already. My old desktop would kill the gaming laptops I've been on...
It would be different if I still had my GTX 260. I would keep it for a while instead of upgrading to a GTX 460. I am building from scratch, and I can't buy a GTX 285, so I will have to get the GTX 460...I can't afford the GTX 470.
I can't see spending $500 on a GPU even if I could get everything for ~$1,000. Also, I hate the fancy blue lights on the case, and that CPU is only dual-core.
Thanks for the input, though.
