Windows 7: Need help with upgrade

11 Mar 2013   #1

Windows Ultimate x64
Need help with upgrade

Hello all,
my spec are as follows:
GPU: GT 9800
CPU: i5 2500k 3,3GHZ (OC'ed to 4,2)
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 Corsair
HDD: 750 GB 7200 RPM
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO

I'm running really high GPU temps, and researched a bit and its typical for my graphics card (try improving the flow in my case but didn't help)

Im looking to spend around 100-120 bucks on a new GPU, I've been looking at the GT650 (should be noted I run dual monitor) so what are your thoughts? Is there another graphic card where I get more bang for the buck?

Unless you can find a HD 7850/7870 in that price range, not really. If nothing else the GTX 650 will soundly stomp your old 9800 GT.
