What graphics card can i get? HD4850?

Hi hi, i've just got a new pc but the graphics card, GT120, isn't too good and i can see this when trying to play games like Far cry 2.

Here it is first of all:

Intel® Core 2 Quad Q8200 (2.33GHz, 4MB Cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium
4GB DDR2 memory
1GB NVIDIA® GeForce GT120 graphics

Anywho, i'm thinking of buying a better card but i have no idea which one, nor do i know how to install it (Although i did replace my older pcs graphics card myself with a x1950 PRO) I've heard the HD4850 is good.

My price range is £70-£150

And also, how would i go about installing it? I want to make sure i don't break my pc accidentally. Just information like how to uninstall my current graphics card/drivers, etc etc

Thank you :)

  1. What power supply do you have?

    Information on installation is just a quick google away, but Ill save you the trouble: http://tinyurl.com/rya92v
    hahaha I love doing that to people.
  2. Yes, we need all of the info you can find on your computer. After that is sorted out, we can worry about the actual parts/build. You may also want to consider the 4770. Similar performance to the 4850, but it uses a bit less power.
