Cool. Thanks for the advice.
He only has 2gb in there now, it was 4gb but 2gb failed sometime while it was sitting in the basement collecting dust.
I'd be happy if he had 4gb in there again.
A 6850 would be overkilll for his needs. I think a 6770 or something similar would be best and also not require upgrading the psu.
It actually runs minecraft fine at lower settings with his system oc'd to 3.0ghz.
I'm hoping to be able to upgrade atleast 2 out of 3 of the parts I'm asking for. If I can do that then I think his system will run just fine until he gets my wifes q8200 as a hand me down when I upgrade hers.
My System Specs
i5 2500k @ 4.7ghz
8gb Crucial Elite DDR3-1600 7-8-7-21
Sapphire Radeon HD6870 OC'd 980mhz clock/1100mhz mem with Arctic Accelero S1 Plus(2x92mm Cooler Master Blade Master)
2tb WD Black
750W NZXT Hale90 80 Plus Gold PSU
MSI Interceptor Nighthawk
24" Dell something or other
