Thanks for your reply. If I upgrade only my graphics card will that do for the time being? And what graphics card model will be the best buy? Thanks.

I was gonna say the only upgrade you need is a trashcan to throw that game into.
Shogun was good, why did Rome have to blow chunks.
... I need to install medieval 2 again...

But actually... your RAM might be too little for Rome 2 anyways, and your OS won't allow you anymore ram (32bit vs 64bit)...
Your whole computer is pretty weak...

What is your budget? And what power supply do you have? The GPU will probably boost the graphics significantly but your CPU is still a bit outdated so I doubt it will run on smoothly on max settings.

Thanks to all for all your prompt replies and advices. I have a power supply of Cross air CX 600 supply. My budget is around $200. I am aiming for GTX 660(Zotac GTX 660 Dual Silencer 2GB DDR5). Can it be installed in my PC? You can suggest me any other alternatives too.
Thanks.

Yes it should work with your system, IF it fit's in your case. So: What case and what motherboard do you have?


Yes, very nice choice IMO. But what about the cheapest GTX 760 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it will be 50$ over your budget but it's an excellent card.


Yeah that's also a great card and definitely worth the extra 50 bucks if you can afford it.

My case is CoolerMaster Elite 431 Plus and my mother board is BIOSTAR GF8100 M2+ SE. But the problem here is that newegg won't ship this item to India :(  . In India GTX 760 will cost me around $300 and R9 270X will cost me $238. Will Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Zotac Synergy Edition and Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2Gbddr5 fit into my motherboard and case?

Yes they will fit. The max. length for the GPU in your case is 315mm, which means it could even take in a beast like this very easily: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
