So I was planning on upgrading my monitor, graphics card, and motherboard sometime in the near future.. But instead of waiting until I have the money for all three, I've decided to buy each separately.
Just have a couple questions:
1. Well.. My title; What should I upgrade first?
2. Will a 4870 be enough for most games at 1680x1050... or even sometimes 1920x1080? I will be playing GTA IV, Prototype, CoD4, and MW2, along with a few others I may pick up.. Or should I just spend the extra ~$70 and get a 4890?
3. Sorry to ask this.. But newer cards will work on older boards, right (referring to PCI express 2.0)? Here's the motherboard I have: Newegg.com - DFI BloodIron P35-T2RL LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Here's the monitor I want: Newegg.com - Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM) - LCD Monitors
Thanks for any help.
