**Also I am pretty much a noob when it comes to computers so I may not understand some of the lingo and whatnot **
Alright I know pretty much nothing about video cards or computers in general, but I am buying a new video card and I need some help/suggestions. I don't have the specs for my comp. right now because I am on vacation but I know the general ***; HP w/ Quad core processor and 4 gigs of ram.
I am looking to get the best bang for my buck. Looking to spend $150-200 at most.
I really don't play any games that require a crazy video card or anything (L4D and TF2), but I might get the new Wolfenstein and play that competitively so yeah.
This seems like a pretty good deal. $175 after rebates, free CoD: WaW, lifetime warranty, etc.
Anyone else wanna help me? I just need some suggestions for what the best bang for my buck would be. Would be awesome if card was around $130~ so I could also get a new monitor, but yeah like I said..up to $200ish
Yeah haha, sadly I'm on vacation and I don't have the specs for my system. I know I use a 19 inch CRT (laugh all you want haha) and I honestly do not know what resolution I play at, which I know is very sad. If I get an extension on my unemployment (lawl), I will be getting this monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Yeah. I noticed that the requirements for the PSU is "Minimum of a 500 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 36 Amp Amps.)
Two available 6-pin Molex hard drive power dongles"
So I'll need to somehow figure out if I have that...I might need someone's help lawl
