I have a 3.0ghz core2duo CPU and An ATI 4800 series graphics card. Would I be better off getting a better graphics card (maybe a gtx 460) or getting a new CPU and motherboard ( maybe a AMD Quad or Hexa Core) Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
depends on what resolution you are trying to play your games at
if your maximum resolution is 1600 x 1200, getting a new video card is useless but if you want a DX11 card, go for the Nvidia 4 series (460 and up)
you have to make sure your CPU is Dual Core or Core 2 Duo
Upgrading to a Quad Core is not a big jump from a Core 2 Duo
but getting an i5 or i7 is worth it
If I had that system of yours I'll wait for a year at least, because you can run all the games on good settings even crysis 2
