How old is the 8800GTX now? Im totally out of date. Ive had mine since launch and to be quite honest its done me superb. Ive never had a card like it before in my life (never had a card that has lasted me 2+yrs).
Anyway, compliments aside, I noticed that with my old C2D processor (not overclocked) it was running sluggishly in Fallout 3 and Far Cry 2.
Ive just upgraded my CPU to the one in my sig as well as my motherboard. Is a GPU upgrade on the cards?
To be honest, the reason why I havent upgraded as of yet is because I havent really had the time to play that many games. The major game I will be playing soon is GTA IV.
So, for gaming @ 1920x1200 is an upgrade a must, and will a significant notice be seen in the following games.
Far Cry 2 (though if this is the only game that is worth the upgrade ill miss. Piece of **** sequel)
Counter Strike Source
Left 4 Dead
P.s another factor in all of this, is that I have a really crap PSU (Corsair 650w)
So I will probably have to upgrade this as well?
