  1. What's your budget?
    What kind of games are you looking for?
    How much RAM do you have?
    What is your PSU (Power Supply Unit) details? Brand, voltage, etc.

    Also, you might get better suggestions in the homebuilt section, rather than games. Nonetheless, you post the details and we'll try and sort you out. :)
  2. you also might want to mention what motherboard you got
  3. I recommend a 400W power supply and the amount of ram really depends on your OS. For Windows XP you don't need much but Vista and Windows 7 suck a lot of RAM just by themselves and so you'll need more.
    Also check out this - http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+5850 - for handy comparison charts for a variety of graphics cards. Also shows quality vs cost.
  4. All i can say is that if you are looking to play any of the modern FPS games be prepared to spend a few hundred dollars for a graphics card. Also be prepared to upgrade it every few years when new games with higher requirements come out. After a few years of this i finally just game up and bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 for gaming instead.
