Re: should i upgrade or buy new
How can that rig not handle recent games?
My old rig with:
PD 3.2 GHz
1 GB DDR2
Can still play the newest games. It plays them on low, but it handles them. Your rig is way better than that.
And yeah, as others have said, you could be maxing most games again with a vid card upgrade. Your cpu is solid. 2 more gigs of ram couldn't hurt either.
CPU: Intel Core i7 920
GPU: ASUS STRIX GTX 970
Ram: 12GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Mobo: ASUS P6T
PSU: 750W PC Power & Cooling
