Update your specs then.
What's your current setup?
What resolution do you play at?
And what do you play?

For that system i would buy the GTX760 2GB or HD7950 3GB.

I dislike AMD only because of the cursor bug while gaming, i have to restart the whole machine again. grrr

No problem.

Have fun with the 760 2GB.

(I always have the cursor bug while playing Company of Heroes and Dota 2 and that's a no go for me with AMD)

He posted a pic with a red arrow pointing to his cpu in the specs thread. I thought it was rather obvious. That was the processor he has and plans on using.

He wasn't clueless at all, you guys missed the red arrow, I saw it right away.

In otherwords that 6000+ IS his updated CPU. Sometimes people can't afford to go too far in the PC market.

I'd not even recommend a GPU to him personally, but to put back money and afford even a Core i3 something at least.

Nope Airbud7 posted that to show that he has not updated his specs. Read the thread again he said later that he could not figure out how to update his specs the never said what he currently uses.

Welcome to the club. Way too many people already know what they want and disregard all suggestions otherwise. Waste of effort.
