Upgrading a Computer for Elder Scrolls Online

Hi there, I plan to upgrade my current computer for the release of Elder Scrolls Online in April. Here are my computer specs:

The computer is a Dell Vostro 200
Motherboard Model: G33M02
300GB SATA Hard drive
3GB DDR2 RAM
Intel Dual Core CPU 4300 @1.80GHz, 1.80GHz
Vista 32 bit OS Business
Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT graphics card 526MB DDR2, PCI Express
400 Watt PSU

I have a replacement CPU lying around somewhere, a Wolfdale Core 2 Duo, E8500, 3.16GHz. The only thing I feel I really need to upgrade still is the graphics card. So the advice I need is what type of powerfulish graphics card can I get that will work with this system?

Any suggestions? I'm only expecting it to be able to run of medium settings, if that.

  1. I'd say this system will struggle to run the game but in terms of a gpu to match it? A HD 7750 or R7 250 would be my recommendation, though the GPU will be bottlenecked a bit i believe.
  2. Cheers for the fast reply, I'm still willing to give it a go. With the graphics cards you recommended will they run on a motherboard that has a DDR2 graphics card?

    It has one PCI-E x16 slot, you can use modern GPUs no trouble.

    Look at HD 7750 or the newer R7 250 as I posted above, better GPU's will require a brand new modern power supply.
