I've got some totally extra cash on my hands and a probably
dying video card, so I'm looking to upgrade a couple things. The rest of my rig is quite capable, so I'm just concerned with video cards at the moment and I'm leaning heavily towards either 2x 7970GHz Edition
or a single 7990
. I've bought many of the modern AAA games, but the game that takes up the most of that time is EVE, many times multiple clients simultaneously. I'm wondering if it would be to my advantage to spend the extra 120 or so per GPU to get the 6GB memory editions vs 3GB. The reviews that I looked at indicated that crossfire 7970GHz was likely the best sweet spot comparing it against 7990 and GTX Titan
and anyone else, any comments?
I'm also considering upgrading monitors and employing either a wall-mounted or desk-mounted monitor stand, so recommendations there are welcome [both monitors and any stand/mounts]. Example of one I was looking at here
. I currently have two different 21" LCD and LED-LCD displays at 1920x1080. Would it be "worth it" to go to the 23" ASUS
recommended to @ardichoke
or "really" bump it up to the venerable HP ZR2440w
? Neither monitor is currently experiencing issues, but it'd be nice to concentrate all my upgrades at the same time as well as have a monitor for my "other" PCs available. I know the upgrade to viewing area would be nice for playing Spreadsheets Online™ and some of the more and more frequent planning things I'm doing for a non-profit that I'm involved with, so maybe that's reason enough for size bumps. I also plan to sell off a bunch of hardware, so be looking for that thread soon™
Let me know what other info I can provide that would help with recs and thanks!
