a few years ago I received some great help on these forums building my own rig.

My favorite online game recently did some 're-optimizing' that somehow left me unable to open multiple clients without extreme slowdowns and I am looking to fix that problem. It seemed about time for an update anyway, I would prefer to just spend a little $, but I also don't want to save in the short term to pay more in the long.

My current build is:


Processor: Intel i5 2.67 Ghz

Graphics Card: MSI twin frzr GTX 460

power  supply Corsair TX650w



I'm thinking of just adding more RAM, but possibly getting a new graphics card as well.

What would you recommend?

Depends on how much money you are willing to spend

You can get the gtx 560 ti for $100 http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Superclocked-Mini-HDMI-Warranty-01G-P3-1563-AR/dp/B004KZHRAM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1407269146&sr=8-2&keywords=gtx+560+ti

The 750 ti for $140 http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Dual-Link-Graphics-02G-P4-3751-KR/dp/B00IDG3PRI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1407269172&sr=8-3&keywords=gtx+750+ti

Or if you prefer AMD

You can grab an r9 270 for $160 http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Version-PCI-Express-Graphics-11220-00-20G/dp/B00I0D81OG/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1407269203&sr=8-5&keywords=amd+graphics+card

or for a lower budget you can get an HD 7770 for $130 http://www.amazon.com/GDDR5-technology-Graphics-Cards-HD7770-2GD5/dp/B0088PK040/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1407269257&sr=8-3&keywords=amd+graphics+card

As for ram: you can get 8Gb's for $89.99 http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HyperX-FURY-2x4GB-1600MHz/dp/B00J8E93G6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1407269322&sr=8-2&keywords=ram

But honestly it depends on how much ram you need for the game you are playing 4 GB's should be fine and about half as much


It's been a while since you posted this, but I hope this can still help if you haven't already bought the parts.
