AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3GHz Socket AM2 2MB L2 Cache,
Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe,
Seagate ST3320620AS 320GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Cache,
OCZ 4x1Gb DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory ATI Crossfire Certified CL4(4-4-4-15) Unbuffered,
Force3D HD4870 Black Edition 512MB GDDR5.
I considered upgrading to:
Asus M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 AMD 880G AM3 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition Dual Core. (Or maybe a AMD CPU Phenom II 965 Black Quad Core instead?)
And 2x2GB 1600 RAM, hadn't decided which one yet.
I would then transfer over the rest of the parts, the HD4870 included and have myself a nice newer system, I mainly play first person shooters on this PC, Bad Company 2 and Black Ops, so I want to get the best performance out of both games. But I'm also considering keeping the PC parts, and simply upgrading the graphics card, while the 512MB on the 4870 is fast, I would much rather have a 1GB graphics card for todays games. I like the look of the GTX 470 or the Gigabyte GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5 OC Edition, the HD5870 is a little too much to pay so I won't be getting that.
Would anyone recommend what I should do, upgrade the CPU/RAM/Motherboard or the graphics card? Would my CPU/RAM still do well for todays gaming with a newer graphics card, or do I ditch the CPU/RAM and keep my HD4870?
