This machine is a few years old by this point, but I think I can salvage another year or two out of it at least. Here are the basic specs:
AMD FX-8150 8-core CPU at 4.0ghz on M4A79 XTD EVO motherboard (manual OC)
16gb of RAM DDR3 1600 at 7-8-8-24
2x Crossfire Twin Frozr II HD 6950 2gb cards, conservative 10% OC
Multiple platter type HD's
Corsair Force 3 SSD for OS and games
I'd like to ditch the dual card setup and go for a single card, something I wish I would have done when I built this thing. Open to either ATI or Nvidia, whatever is going to give me the best price to performance ratio - probably looking at the third card down in current hierarchy or so, definitely not the biggest, newest, most expensive card on the block. I'd like to spend somewhere between $300-$400 USD.
What kind of upgrade do you suggest, and what kind of performance increase do you think I can expect from it?
