Hello all. I have a machine that's 3.5 years old, and is in desperate need for an upgrade. It was originality for gaming, but it can't do that for shit anymore due to an ancient video card, and some-what slow cpu. here are the specs: Pentium dual-core e5200 OC'd to 3.5 gigahertz ati radeon HD 4830 512mb Gigabyte EP43-UD3L Corsair ddr2 800mz 4gig 500 gig 7200 rpm sata 2 hdd dvd burner Big mofo of a cooler (cooler master, don't remember what model.) I have a small budget (only $200, but might be able to rustle up a little more if it is worth it.) I was thinking about getting a 6870 1gig, since i can get one for only $110, and later on when I have the money to get a new machine (and the new hardware is out), I could give it to my brother who has that video card plus an phenom 2 X4 395 OC'd so he could crossfire it. I have no idea what to upgrade my cpu to however. So my questions are: Is it a good upgrade plan to get a 6870 now and pass it on to someone who can crossfire it later, or should I get a different card? What CPU should I get? Ideally, I would like equivalent performance to the before mentioned phenom 2 X4 395 and amd 6870 1gig. Thanks for reading, Jovan.
