Hi these are the specs of my computer, and i was wondering how i should upgrade my computer. I bought this computer last september if that helps. I use it mostly for gaming and the 7950 doesn't really cut it with the my favorite games like call of duty 4 and universe at war with highest specs. I am willing to spend around 400-500 dollars to upgrade my computer. I'm mostly looking for a video card suggestion and maybe some other things.Thanks, i really appreciate it. :thumbsup:

That sounds like a pretty nice computer. The processors don't come much better then what you have now for an AMD board (unless your board has a bios update to a phenom processor, but those haven't been working out too well from what I've heard, and I've also heard the phenom processors haven't been that great).

For a graphics card though, I would recommend a Nvidia Geforce 8800GT. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....=GeForce+8800GT
I prefer EVGA, XFX, and PNY as good brands for nvidia graphics cards, there are others though.

If you want to though, you might want to wait a few days (I think 3 or 4 days from now) because the 9800GTX's are suppose to be coming out. I don't know how good they are going to be, but I heard the price for one is suppose to be about $300-$400

Thanks i'll keep that in mind :thumbsup: . That'll also give me more time to wait for more opinions.
