Get a 260 (non-X) , or scrap the whole machine ? Current card: 6750 1 GB.

So, I got an Athlon II X4 640 with a HIS 6750 1GB. And ya know, it does decent .. ish. But it's starting to struggle in games like GTAV and Wolf: Old Blood. (The level with the mech and before the graveyard specially) .

Anyway, I was thinking .. There's no point in putting much money in to it, but would a $80 R7 260 get me by a little longer ? It seems to nearly double the 7750, which is already better than the 6750 in benchmarks.

Or is it time to scrap it all, and wait till I can get an i3, 265 or 950, all that good stuff ?

Note: Screen res is 1440x900 (basically the 720p of 16:10 ? ) .

    you are gpu starved yeah, but your cpu is just barely better than minimum requirement.

    and that is going to be the point of weakness, whatever gpu you drop in is going to be cpu bottlenecked


    a 260 is good if you dont mind ~30 fps

    That's what I'm getting anyway . Maybe I should just play out this machine and start looking for new parts budget ?
