Motherboard : ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX
Video Card : AMD Radeon HD 6770 | 800 Stream Processors - 1GB - 128-bit - GDDR5 (633897-ZH1PCI)
Processor : AMD FX-Series FD4170FRGUBOX (Zambezi Quad-Core FX-4170 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo))
I was looking to get a higher bit-rate video card, and was looking at the SAPPHIRE 100311-3L Radeon HD 6970, but is now discontinued.
My hardship is that my motherboard only has a PCI Express 2.0 x16, which makes it more difficult to find a decent card (that isn't $400.00+).
The Sapphire in the link above would have been perfect for the update i was looking for (double ram and bit-rate).
Does anyone know of a video card similar to the Sapphire listed above? the current video card handles decently, but does lack at certain high points.
(IE: playing SC2 with 2vAI,game starts to lag with the excess in units on the map).
An update may not completely fix this issue, but will certainly help, not to mention the card i currently use has one small fan, and does get loud quickly.
Im not as familiar with the newer video card brands, so I'm not sure how the stack up to the ones i am familiar with.
If there is a GeForce card that will work that is fine; im not opposed to using a GeForce or AMD video card.
Please let me know if i need to clarify or add anything.
~Thank you for your time
I may have placed this in the wrong section; Can this be moved to the System Building and Upgrading section of the forum (if applicable)?
~Sorry for the inconvience
