Hello. My pc was built by you guys in 2010, It still preforms very well but It struggles with newer games.
I would love to fully upgrade but funds do not allow.
I've added an SSD and have lost a video card ( was 2 x 460's)
Here are the specs.

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 Intel P55 DDR3 PCI-E LGA1156 ATX

Intel Core i5 760 Lynnfield 2.80GHz 8MB LGA1156

Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. B CPU Cooler LGA1366 LGA775 w/ Fan w/Bracket

OCZ Intel Extreme Series 2x2GB DDR3-1600 CL8

Gigabyte nVidia Geforce GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E (GV-N460OC-1GI)

Corsair HX650 650W Modular Power Supply

Antec P183 Performance One Black ATX Mid Tower New SSD Mounting

I have monitor, hard drives, keyboard, mouse.
Budget would be between $500 - $1000
Thank you

Hi r34gt,

I'd go for a Nvidia Founders Edition GTX1080 for optimal performance under $1000.

Thanks for your reply
So it would be that easy? Just slotting in a newer video card. What about compatibility issues?

Afternoon R34gt,

The GTX1080 should be fine on you PCI 2 motherboard, there may be marginal performance loss but the upgraded horsepower will still be a major upgrade.

When you do upgrade in the future you can also just bring the 1080 with you.
