I don't really play the latest and greatest first person shooters or anything like that. The single-player games that I do play on my PC (Dragon Age, Crysis, Witcher 2) all run flawlessly.
The immediate problem I am trying to solve is lag in Guild Wars 2, specifically in places like the Black Citadel and the bandit caves in the human area. I also imagine that I will be seeing similar graphics and potential for "laggy" areas in TESO when I give it a try later this year (hopefully).
So, based on my current specs, do you think it would suffice to simply upgrade my video card to something better?
Operating System : Windows XP Professional
Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz (4 CPUs)
Memory : 3264MB RAM
Page File : 811MB used, 4339MB available
DirectX Version : DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
Card name : NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+
Chip type : GeForce 9800 GTX+
DAC type : Integrated RAMDAC
Display Memory : 512.0 MB
Current Mode : 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz)
Monitor Max Res : 1600,1200
Driver Name : nv4_disp.dll
Driver Version : 6.14.0013.0142 (English)
DDI Version : 9 (or higher)
I was hoping to get away with a GTX 660 until I am prepared to do the whole rig. How does the 660 compare to what I have and would it perform better than my current card given the age of the rest of my components?
