I am in abit of a dilemma, my XFX4890 is showing signs or failure, so i am now using an old 8800GTX. I only play World of Warcraft and Counter Strike: Global Offensive, so not massively graphical games to be fair.
My system runs these games pretty well, around 150+fps in CS:GO and since the 8800GTX i get around 40-60fps in WoW, it use to be higher with the 4890.
I have a Core2Duo E6850 @ 3GHz with just 4GB of RAM and a Crucial M4 SSD, Its a pretty old setup i have had since 2008! But it seems to run great for what i use it for...
My dilemma is do i upgrade to something like a Nvidia 650ti now or do i save the money and buy a new mobo / cpu / ram / gpu around Christmas time when there should be some good deals on, however if i buy a new card now... i could use that in a new system in the future... but then the card will be out of date! Its like a catch22, plus Christmas is expensive for me as it is... and the word "Christmas Bonus" this year is met with angry faces.
So i just wanted some opinions really on what you would do, because i only play the two games... i don't think i need massive amounts of power, however maybe i dont know what im missing by not having a high spec machine, i suppose if i played WoW on a i5 / 16gb / 650ti setup i would notice a huge difference and wonder how i managed for so long!
Honest opinions welcome
