    Upgrading my computer

    Hey guys,

    I am planning on upgrading my computer(mainly the GFX card) and i would like some advice from you guys. I am after a gaming machine.

    My current computer is:

    Mobo: nVIDIA nForce 680i SLI

    CPU: QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 2400 MHz (9 x 267)

    RAM: 8GB DDR2-800

    GFX: Nvidia 8800 GTS x 2

    OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional

    I am looking to spend on GFX card however if you feel i should spend on other areas then please let me know.

    I have been looking at this GFX card Sapphire HD 5970 OC 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer.
    (**4...archtype=genre )

    Will that work with my current set up? Or would i need to upgrade other areas first?

    Thanks in advance,

    What's your current PSU?

    An ATI HD 5970 is currently the fastest card on the market, it's very long so make sure it fits in your case and power hungry so make sure PSU is up to it as it's essentially 2 GPU's built onto a single PCB.

    I'd also just settle for a 5850/5**0 unless you play on a 24"+ monitor capable of displaying 1920x1200+ resolution.
