I wish I could remember what GPU I have. 460? 560? It's really never been important...
....not even the day you bought it huh?
Heh, I went for bang for the buck at that point, putting the money into the CPU instead, with the expectation I'd build a new one within 18 months.
Been 26, no real reason to replace it, either.
GPU is more important than CPU in 99% of games. I have no idea why people always spend so much on CPUs and then buy some budget videocard. High-end CPUs are always overpriced. You can usually just buy a midrange CPU and then overclock it to achieve the same performance as the high-end CPUs.
Because I spend more PC time doing modeling and monte carlo simulations than I do playing any game at high resolutions, and therefore a high CPU speed is more in my favor?
Also, I picked up the i5-760 for $199, not like I broke the bank and got some octo-core.
