Thinking of a pc upgrade


Recommended Posts

Any ideas? Please see sig for current system spec. Could I see a significant improvement anywhere, maybe a new gpu (would prefer to stay with ATI). Ta

MOJO!!!

 

I'm out of idea, your CPU is great, maybe a HD Radeon 7970 Ghz edition could handle better your screens. A friend of mine bought, he runs a 27", not on DCS, but he's really happy with it.

+1 for the HD7970. It has more than plenty (6) outputs for future projects. Maybe TM Cougars? But if you re not in a hurry, wait for the next gen of graphic cards for the price of the 7970 to drop and maybe consider the 8XXX.

 

But I dont know exactly, when that will happen.

TM Cougar? He already has a TM Warthog.:noexpression:

 

Btw that friend gave me its 5870 :), he had a 5870 Crossfire before the 7970, and he has a nice performances kick!

Your platform is adequate. vid card too, although for DCS I'd choose one from green side.

So no real reason to upgrade unless you absolutly have to throw money at it. In that case you can go for Ivy bridge platform but that upgrade will not be very noticeable.

Thanks, it does the job. I think my cpu and gpu are getting on a bit now though. I don't wanna go down the Xfire route so would stick with one card. I think maybe it would be wise to wait for the next gen cards as you say 8XXX, although I don't have an hd6950 reference card (was one of the newer 6950 cards with only one BIOS and unflashable. Is there much difference between the 6950 and 7950 for this sim? Maybe an HD 6970 will be a nice upgrade for now. It's the itch that's making me do it!!!!!

Not really a problem, it's the Itch again, see, and my comp has a scratch!!! I can always justify it to my wife this way. 'You see wifey (as is her name) it's not spending £150 on a new graphics card, it's actually only £50 cos my other one is going on eBay!' At least it works when I tell myself that. Who needs food for kids when they can have half a decent comp for their dad to play on?! All above love you see

My youngest likes to play on it too, so there's justification for me :)

I switched from a 6950 with unlocked shaders to a MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr 2GB (not Ti) and everything runs a little smoother, the card is cold and quiet... and it was pretty cheap an upgrade... but most important of all - NO MORE AMD WHITE FLASHING BOXES!!!

think next New Year and maybe only maybe do it? In a year it might be worth going windows 8 with some touch monitors around you for fun.
