My System Specs


Because you sound like you are after gaming fps my recommendation for your $300 budget would be to sell the 6870, and grab a 7950. That would be your best gaming fps improvement with your $300 budget.

Current sale: for $299.99, but $30 MIR and the following included
1. Never Settle Enthusiast Bundle Far Cry 3 Sleeping Dogs Hitman Absolution Download *AMD Promo Only* (a $170 value!) 2. Nexusz PC Game Coupon - MSI Promotional (a $50 value!) 3. Shogun 2 PC Game Coupon - MSI Promotional (a $50 value!) 4. Dirt Showdown PC Game Coupon - MSI Promotional (a $50 value!)

MSI Radeon HD 7950 Twin Frozr III 880MHZ 3GB 1250MHZ GDDR5 DVI HDMI 2XMINI DP DX11 PCI Video Card

Another option, if you are after a more generally fast feeling computer (and load times), is to just keep everything as is and add a 120-240gb SSD. Save the difference for a future upgrade or something else you need.

Keep your eyes open tonight/tomorrow and monday for even better deals.
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K 1.09v/4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb@1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB
Away from home light Gamer: Acer Aspire 15.6", A8-3500m undervolt and OC to 2Ghz, 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance, Crucial M500 240gb
