Do I need to change anything when installing a different graphics card on my Asus Windows 8

According to systemrequirementslab.com:

I need a Geforce GTX 260 or better in order to run the game Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2, BF3, in order to reach recommended settings for optimal gameplay.

I have a graphics card : ASUS HD8350 series

This is a completely new computer, but my game drops fps dramatically and I have choppy stuttering performance and it is really pissing me off.

So, my question is, if I were to install a Geforce GTX (any version) onto my computer, do I need to upgrade or downgrade my motherboard or anything just to run a specific card?

I am desperate to start playing a game and to achieve the full experience of a great game like how it is in the game trailers

you made a mess of that. nobody pays attention to recommended anything...... especially the lower requirements.

what hardware do you have?.....cpu/mb/ram/ps
what is your monitor resolution?
how much money do you have to invest?

According to the specs on the asus site you can drop any video card you want in there as long as the PSU can put out enough juice.

I would look at a left over AMD HD 7850. I see those on sales for like $130.

I would not go anything older than a GTX 400 series or a HD 5000 series because your going to want DX11. The older GTX260 will NOT run newer DX11 games like CoD Ghosts, or Crysis 3, or whatever comes out in the future.

A GTX650 starts at around $110. At that price its a great card. Pretty good performance, low electrical usage and low heat.

Also, I recently bought a 600w psu brand named "Thermaltake" . Will upgrading the PSU make it so that I can input a Geforce GTX 660 TI into my computer? I may consider it - not a GTX 650
