@Ewy: Yeah I saw something about that specific card being around $500 USD, which is pretty insane. I was thinking more around the $200 area. I'll check out the guide you linked, thanks! Anything I should be wary of while looking at those cards, or will the majority of them work with my motherboard?
@Ewy: Oh, I for sure have ubersampling turned off, I also turned off ssao, motion blur, and depth of field, but it doesn't affect my frame rate in the slightest. Is the rest of my computer equipped to handle any type of the new Radeon graphics cards? All these variables when it comes to upgrading something is nerve racking.
Sorry for all the links, just wanted to provide as much information as possible.
Anyways, from what I've gathered my computer doesn't do the best when it comes to high performance games e.g. The Witcher 2 which I have about 30-45 frames when playing, the frame rate is constantly moving,I and Star Wars: The Old Republic, I'll have a solid frame rate but there's quite a lot of stuttering. I'm leaning towards upgrading my video card first but I'm not completely sure. Whatever the case, I won't be able to buy whatever it is that I need for 1-2 months.
