Hey everyone!

I currently have in my system:

P5K SE motherboard.
DuoCore E650 2.66Ghz
4 GB G.Skill 800Mhz
Palit GeForce 1GB+Super Nvidea Card
800GB HDD
19inch Dell widescreen Monitor

What would you reccomend would be my next best upgrade, in regard to most price effective and something which will last for the next generation games within the next year or so?

Cheers

Danny

Alright, so what is your budget and do you have a specific time frame in which you want to upgrade?

Ahh right now i have no set budget, i just want to know what my next logical uprgade would be in relevance to gaming. I was thinking my graphics card... but then i'm wondering how much will that improve performance. I run COD4 on High at the moment. Crysis on high has slow frame rate. Just wondering whether it comes down to my processor or card? Or whether my motherboard has much to do with it?

NO real time constraints!

Cheers

Yes, well the graphics card would definitely be the next thing to upgrade. Upgrading it would give you the biggest boost in framerates (compared to if you upgraded your other components) in most cases. As for what exactly to upgrade it to, that again would depend on how much you are spending and when you are spending it.
