Hey guys and gals, (dont know if there are any gals in the community, 0/ < wave to ya though) I wanted to start a lil early in my scouting for a new gpu.
I just bought a new computer about 3 - 4 months ago and it is working great! My current gpu though, is a bit old and Im playing my games on lower settings... I would love to experience the ultra settings rampage, so Im debating a budget for a single vs sli/crossfire gpu setup to power my 40 inch 1080p panel. :P
So I will do research, ofc, but always like to ask other folks that have more experience and wisdom than I regarding the new upcoming stuff. What are we looking at for release around October of this year? I will be in the market around then, looking to trade out my old 8800 gts oc edition, for a new gpu.
I play bf4 a lot, Eve online quad boxing ftw..., gta v when it comes out for pc... and maybe a few odds and ends. but those are my major games that I play regularly. What would you recommend for the current build
I5 4670 k haswell OC'd ofc... 4.3 ghz
8 gb ram ddr3
asus z87 pro with two pci e 3.0 slots ready for sli or crossfire
and Ill be getting a new ps and case... to accommodate the new gpu.
I could use some 1666 memory, currently have 1333...
I could use a ssd for my os, and a new os win 7 ofc... :P
I MAY be flexible on budget, allowing a thousand dollars total for an upgrade... max... I can spend more but really dont want to. that will put me about 2g's total for this build and I think that is more than enough. :P
If I can squeeze the upgrade with the budget AND go with liquid cooling setup, I would LOVE to do that, for the cpu AND gpu.
So there it is... I know some of you love this stuff, dont spend too much time on it, but if you know something or feel you have something to add, please by all means, reply.
Also, if you have something you want to upgrade, but have a card I may be interested in and youd sell it to me, ofc I would consider that! :P let me know?
