Hi, i'm new here,

this is my spec:

+ OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
+ CPU : Intel Core i7 870 @ 2.93GHz
+ RAM : 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3
+ Motherboard : Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H55M-S2H (Socket 1156)
+ Graphic : W2253 (1920x1080@60Hz)
1024MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series (XFX Pine Group)
+ PSU : (Model : ENP 550AAB A) manufactured by Enlight. 550W

What I want to ask are:
1. does this spec still count as low-end for game purposes? (i play battlefield 3 today, and i got only 20-30 fps in low graphic settings)

2. I've messed up the graphic drivers really bad (until I have to use system restore and fixed by clean installation of newer graphic driver). Before that event, i can run any game in ultra pretty decently (game such as WoW: Cataclysm, FarCry3, Crysis2). After doing clean installation of the graphic drivers, all games can run on ultra, but as soon as i restart the computer or shut it down, all game will have major fps drop even in normal graphic settings. If there is a solution please help me.

3. If this thing cannot be fixed, and the problem is in the graphic card, I plan to buy a new graphic card. What is a better graphic card compared to ati radeon HD 5830 to be used in my spec?

thx.

It was high end a few years back. But not now.

For a new card - pick anything from - http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html the top 100 will be better.

Make sure you've got a power supply that will handle it though.

thx for answering,

from the link you gave, I have 2 options:
1. geforce gtx 760
2. amd radeon HD 7870

Are they have the same pci-e slot as ati radeon HD 5830?

PS: I'm not really a computer expert

Yes - all video cards fit all motherboards. Just use the primary pcie slot on the motherboard - the one at the top.

The gtx 760 and hd 7870 will need a 500W single 12V rail power supply. Get a good one per - http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su... eg XFX 550, Seasonic 520, Antec HCG 520M
