Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

Do I need to upgrade my graphics card yet? (No.) - PCSTATS.com Do I need to upgrade my graphics card yet? (No.)
Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:12PM | Filed under: Video Cards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"In some ways, this exercise was one with a pre-determined result: is getting a newer graphics cards going to give you better performance? Absolutely. What we honestly weren't sure of was HOW MUCH performance consumers were going to get for that upgrade and the answer is just as complicated as I had thought it would be. Depending on the games you are playing, you can go from unplayable to a good experience (Metro 2033) or see little real-world advantage (Left 4 Dead 2). I think the results seen in this article show that more often we are leaning towards the former and as 2011 progresses and titles like Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, FEAR 3 and Battlefield 3 are released, the upgraded GPUs of today will be more and more necessary."
