i have just bought a PC from a guy who built from spare parts, its running fine for me but i want to increase my framerates when i upgrade from a 19" to a 22" monitor.
Core 2 duo E6300
Foxconn P4M900+7MB (FSB 1066/800/533
2GB DDR er.. something, 6xxx?
Radeon 3870 512MB DDR4
at the moment in crisis, i have the GFX floating between 1024x768 and 1280x1024 with a mixture of mid and gamer settings (so approx 65%) and im getting some slowdown in areas and i dont have FSAA on.
What would give me the biggest performance increase? new Mobo (p4Q i think) or maybe a new CPU or possible a better graphics card? whats causing the slowdown here on high settings?
