Hello, new to site,only just found it and i wish i had known much longer.
My 630i is still stock with 2x HD 3870'S , 4GB RAM ,Core 2 quad 2.4ghz. been playing games on it since 2008 but now i want to play Dragon age inquisition, so i was thinking of upgrading the cards.

I play Heroes and generals,warthunder,recently replayed dragon age 1 and 2,with no problems, although TW Shogun 2 is a little unstable.
After a little research i have 3 possible routes ,A 1x gtx 660,B 1x R9 270x, C 2x R7 260x each option is around the same price.

The upgrade options may or may not be viable, so i would like to ask you guys what would be my best option to play DAI and maybe keep pc going until Eternal Crusade is released, at which point my 630i will need to be replaced.

Thanks for any help you can give,i just don not want to let this pc retire just yet.

I know a GTX 660 Ti will work in the PC from my own experience. That would meet the recommended requirements. As far as the rest of the PC, I think it just barely meets the minimum requirements. I'm not really sure how it will play. If you don't mind turning off most of the eye candy, it will probably play ok.

Thanks for the reply kevink37,
I looked for a gtx 660 , the vendors i tried were out of stock.
I ended up buying a msi gtx 760 ,which seems to be running nicely,TW shogun2 now runs on ultra setting very smoothly, just waiting for DAI repair patch to be released then i will give it a go.
