I am happy with the performance on older generation titles. I don't know what the new generation titles are going to be like.

BTW, "your" and "you're" are two different words with different meanings. Just FYI.

This would be more appropriate in the PC Hardware board. This board is only for PC & Mac games discussion only.

You know, if I posted this topic in hardware forum and started talking about games, some distinguished and enlightened person, such as yourself would point out that it belongs in the PC games board. So there really is no winning here is there?

[QUOTE="Too_tight_shoes"]I say if you have anything as strong or stronger than a HD 4870 and your running a single monitor that's less 1080p... you have no reason what so ever to upgrade.Advid-Gamer

I am running a 1920x1200 monitor dude. I am not sure how Just Cause 2 is going to run. The demo works fine, so is the full version much like that?

Normally how the demo runs, is how the whole game will run, so you should have no problems

Do you think that GTA 4 will run any better?

It seems more and more games are starting to require a better CPU as long as you have a generally good GPU - case in point GTA IV, NFS Hot Pursuit and CoD Black Ops gained the most performance for me when I shifted over from a dual-core at 2.3 GHz to a quad-core at 2.4GHz - rather than the interim when I installed my 2nd GTS 250 card and enabled SLI. I'd say if you have a 260 GTX it may not actually be the card that's slowing your performance down in newer games - it might be your CPU. If you're running Windows Vista or 7 the Windows Experience Index can actually tell you what your bottleneck is - just go through and see what has the lowest score. Keep in mind Crysis 2 runs better than the first game.Stinger78

The performance in most of the games is fine.

I want to play Metro 2033 in DX 11, and Just Cause 2 in DX10 or 11 whichever it is. So I thought about upgrading but then again, I guess there is no real point in doing so.

I'll stick to my current GPU and buy a gaming mouse instead. Thanks guys for your input.

That depends on if you have the money to upgrade, I went from a dual core e8400, 4 gigs ram, vista 64, and a gtx 285 to a quad core 3.5, 8 gigs ram, windows764, and qa gtx 580 and i cant hardly tell a FN difference in the games I play, but I had fun building it!

Advid-Gamer

At the moment I have the money. I just want to know if its going to make any difference in the games at the moment. I mean 260GTX is not top of the time and GTA 4 sort of struggles to run on it, but, I think I can manage with this one for a while. Just wanting to know if there is any point in spending the money or not.

I would say no, I bought a dx11 card to play dx11 games, but there really are none, Da2 in dx11 dosent even look that good. At this point I think it is to soon to upgrade, consoles and bad economy'shave really stopped the graphic groth on the pc, i would wait. Wish I would have, other then some extra fps that i didnt really need, I could have waited for everything to get cheaper. Hopefully some games in the near future will change my mind.

Thanks bro. I am going to get a gaming mouse instead.

[QUOTE="chandu83"]

[QUOTE="FelipeInside"]imo your GPU is fine for now (hell, a few months back I was playing every game with a 8800GTX until it died). Spend your money on something else.FelipeInside

Thanks. I think you are right. I really wanted to upgrade, but I think I will wait for a while. Who knows, maybe GeForce 6XX will be out soon?

Is there any solid news on the DX11 patch for Crysis 2? That is one game I want to play in DX11. I have a feeling DX9 is not going to do justice to the game. I could be wrong though.

DX11 might be a few months out or even never. Lots of people say Crysis 2 in DX9 looks amazing anyway....

It seems to me as if unless the consoles get new hardware we PC gamers are never going to see game companies make the transition from DX9 to DX11. This is rather unfortunate.

I am more inclined to not upgrade at the moment.
