Topic: Upgrading an HD 6950 gfx card   Go to last post
Posted: Thursday, May 7, 2015 1:03:51 AM(UTC)
Hi there,

This is my first post here, but I was simply looking for advice on which graphics card (or perhaps other 'bottleneck' component) to buy for my system. Here are my specs:

Intel 2500K processor

8GB DDR3 RAM

Radeon Sapphire HD 6950, 2gB

7200 RPM 1TB HDD

Windows 7

Was wondering whether it is time to upgrade the GFX card at this point, considering that I am beginning to have to lower settings on games such as GTA V pc and BF4 (both 1920x1080). I DO run dual monitors, but obviously am not playing games on both. I am looking to spend between 2-3 hundred for a decent upgrade. I plan on buying the Witcher 3, along with other games as they come out. Any suggestions are appreciated, and thanks!

Edit: I should mention that I am running Windows on my other 1TB 5k RPM drive, which I know slows down windows itself, but doesn't seem to have much effect once a game is actually up and running.
