I have a AMD Radeon HD 7450 and i want to know what i should upgrade to so Skyrim will run smooth.
It feels a bit laggy when playing i dont know anything about computers really and i think i need a graphics card upgrade.
markwp said:The 7450 is not really a gaming card. Skyrim can be pretty intensive, and you need more "umph" to play. What's your budget? Also, what cpu, motherboard and psu do you have?
my buget is like 300-400 area, i have the amd fx-6100 six core processor, and my motherboard is M3970AM-HP (Angelica), im not sure about cpu.
Unless you purchase a very low end card, you are going to need a new power supply also. HP psu's are very weak, and do not do well with anything over an HD 7750 or GTX 640, both of which are pretty much entry level gaming (the 7750 is the best you can buy in that category).
In order to run a low-mid range card such as the HD 7790 or GTX 660, you are going to need a quality 500w psu from a reputable maker such as Corsair (HX or TX), Antec, Seasonic or XFX.
