This question probably gets asked a lot in the PC forum, I've read through the What to Buy and How to build sticky but I mostly get confused with all the GT/GTX/ 1984/ stuff and they all blur in to one heap of letters and numbers and i can never work out A)Which is better and B)Which is right for me.
I want to upgrade my set-up as i've recently got into gaming on PC over my xbox, Deciding to buy Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite through steam. These are my first "AAA" titles, as i used to use my pc for things like Terraria and stuff.
My current specs are:
Intel Core i3 2120 @3.3ghz
8GB DDR3 RAM
Nvida GeForce GT430
64gb SSD HD (Recent upgrade, running os)
1tb HHD (Where my programs and data are installed)
I run my pc duel screen with my main display as a 17" monitor connected via VGA and my 42" LCD TV connected via HDMI (also used for audio)
The TV is where XBMC, Steam Big Screen and all my games are played. My Monitor is really just for browsing the net
Games run mostly fine between 30-60fps on Bioshock/tombraider on Mid settings, drop to around 15-30fps at Mid-High and the benchmark test says Adv 8fps on ultra/ultimate/best settings (all at 1920x1080)
My budget is from £50-120 for a new GPU. I've looked on ebuyer and tried to google what i should get but theres too many brands/models and none really say "This is the card you want to see Lara's awesome TressFX at 60FPS OMG!!!11!!!1"
Also I will be acquiring 2 sticks of 8GB DDR3 Ram from my brother when his new RAM arrives so i will have 16GB RAM then.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and apologies if you duders get this question all the time and are pissed off with always answering it.
