Hello,

I have a question. I am given a certain amount of money for Christmas and I dont know what should I buy. On one hand I have a poor Graphics card that I'm currently using and on the other I have a crappy Processor which I am also using. I have two possible options from which I have to choose. On one side the Asus Radeon HD6670 1GB DDR5, and on the other side the Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 GHz 3MB Cache. I am currently using an Intel Pentium D 945 which was launched in the early 06 and which is running at 3.4GHz and a ATI Radeon HD 4350 1GB DDR2 graphics card. I want to know which choice would be better for gaming? the HD 6670 or the Core 2 Duo?

Thank you.


Here are my system specifications

You will get better game playing with the graphic card upgrade.

Good Luck
