Hey guys, I am new to this whole pc gaming community and I have no financial means to buy a new, wonderfully powerful gaming pc, so im working with what I have. Currently I am running on:
Windows 7 Ultimate
AMD Athlon 7550 Dual Core 2.5 GHZ (No OC)
PEGATRON CORPORATION NARRA5 5.00
4 gbs of ram
128 gb ssd
Ideally I wanna play Diablo 3 and DarkSiders 2 on high settings. Considering my financial situation and my elderly computer. What video card should i get that will fit my criteria? (budget)
a gtx 550ti is a pretty decent card but u cannot expect to play on ultra settings with 1080p resolution..
And a gtx 550ti has its max TDP rated at 116 watt..
So u'll definitely need a powerful PSU to feed it..
Well it is surely the best for your budget but including a PSU will throw your budget out of your prescribed range...
Best of luck..!!
Do that, and new series of Radeon cards should be coming out in dec/jan, so you might want to look into that. From the looks of it, they are not going to overprice their cards on release like last time.
