My PC currently includes a 4870x2, i5-750 @ 3.7ghz, 4gb DDR3 RAM, Asus P55 Mobo, 500gb F1 7,200rpm HDD. 24" Monitor @ 1920x1200.
- If i were to to make a single upgrade to one of those components, which do you think it should be?
- Are SSD's worth it now, or wait a bit longer for things like the Vertex III to get come and get a bit cheaper?
Further, i'm getting fan/heat issues with my 4870x2. It's not rendering it useless, but it gets 90 degrees (which isn't too bad) under pressure but the fans get incredibly loud and after a period of reduces FPS too. So perhaps that should be a consideration.
Any ideas what the weakspot may be in my computer? Crysis warhead ran fine nearly maxed out but Crysis (I've tried all graphic settings, gamer, advanced, hardcore) and they all run about 5-20fps. I have the latest 11.2 ati drivers.
ATI 4870x2 GPU
i5-750 @ 3.7ghz
4.0gb DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium
Running at 1920x1200 res (24" monitor).
Thanks, any suggestions!
