    hey guys! Long time haven't been here.

    Ok, so i had this system spec copied from Guru3d 2008's mid spec and has serve me well since 2008 till now. Decide to upgrade because Metro: last light can't be played unless 720p n low setting. so which card would be worth replacing the 4850? budget is 4000 to 6000 baht (from Thailand) here are the price list: http://www.tkcom99.com/pricelist.php

    Thx you

    Ps: if anything can be change/replace, do tell also

    This is your best bet...HIS R9 270 ICE Q 2G D5 at 5990 Baht. Price is messed up, even the GTX750 Ti is more expensive than this HIS R9 270 ICE Q. But the R9 270 stomps all over the GTX750 Ti....

    This is the best choice according to my opinion, too. Agree with mikeysg:
    HIS R9 270 ICE Q 2G D5. It is a good card, similar with 7870 which u can keep it for a future build, also.

    It would still game a lot better than your 4850...if you could find a used Core 2 Quad 9xxx it would be even better...

    Get a R270 then if you notice some bottleneck do what airbud sadi, some c2q would be nice.

    Might be better just to go ahead and get a new 4xxx series Intel CPU and motherboard first. Just depends what do you play? What is the reason for wanting a new gpu?

    @airbud7 and Undying: a C2Q hmm, kinda hard to find but can try though.
    update: saw this "Xeon X3350(Q9450) 2.66Ghz/12M/1333 2,690.-" this same as C2Q?

    @Lowki: Just to play games at 1080p again with high/ultra setting again, lately new title, i have to notch down few settings here and there but 1080p. Metro series, Crysis 3 have to low settings alot, heck dota 2 only around 40 to 50 fps.

    Yes^ that would work, especially overclocked.....BLEH! would know a Xeon/overclocking better than me though.

    X3350 is good but see if you can find a X3360/70 (Q9550/60). The higher multipliers are better for overclocking with DDR800 RAM.

    An overclocked C2Q is a good upgrade if you can find one cheap but you'll still need to upgrade your graphics card too. How does Metro: Last Light run with 2x 4850's is crossfire? Buying another 4850 cheap might be worth looking into for a budget upgrade. (Edit: ah, they're only 512MB so maybe not.)

    4850 is up to DX10 and crossfire scaling is not as good as recent AMD cards. Not to mention Crossfire stability issues in some games.

    R270 is a way to go.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one still rocking an HD4850. If it's any help, I'm planning an upgrade to a 270x or 280x (haven't fully decided yet)

    Pretty much anything better than a 6950, I upgraded from a 4870 to a 6950 and it was a world of difference, even now years later I'm still getting a lot of performance out of it.

    So yeah go r7 270 or higher like the others have said.
