@ Hi guys,
I am not sure which way to go with this. I do hesitate between upgrading my GPU or buying PS4 to play Battlefielf 4 at playable frame rates. My current PC is two years old. It is:
i7 at 2.93 Ghz; 6 GB RAM; ATI HD 5850 , Mainboard: P7H57d-7 evo.
If I have to buy new GPU it would be GTX 770 or ATI HD 7970 Ghz edition. Would those graphic cards be compatible with my PC. My board is supporting PC Express 2.0. I heard that those new GPU are working on PCI Express 3.0. IS PCI 2.0 compatible with 3.0 cards? Also do you think that I would have to upgrade anything else?
There will be new Radeons R9s coming out later this month. This is also an option.
The next possibility is to buy PS4 and save myself all the compatibility problems.
Could someone who knows the stuff try to answer whether my current PC work well with new GPU to play B4 onultra settings and whether PC upgrade is better than PS4 purchase.
On my current specs B4 run really choppy.
Thank you for looking into my post and finding answer to my dilema.
