Hi Everyone...just bought a new PC with the following specs below. I'm new to PC gaming (always consoles) and need a new video card. Looking at a 4850 to use on my 1920x1080 screen. Will that be enough to run Crysis? I could have got a 2.5GHz processor with 8GB RAM also. Thank-you so much!!

For crysis i would suggest an nvidia card. At that resolution i would recommend a card with over 512mb of video memory. If the gtx260 is within your budget go for that if not a gts250 would work. That processor is fine just need to overclock it a bit. What psu do you have?

It's 400W! I looked at the GTX 260, went back and forth between that and the 4850/4870.

Can you give me more detail on the psu? If you can give me the model i could recommend a proper card.

or you could just upgrade your motherboard and psu and then add a second 4850, then you can upgrade later on.

I cant find the spec of that psu. If you could open the case and look at the psu. Look at where it says 12v. Check how many 12v rails there are as well as how many amps. Also check to see how many 6pin pcie connectors are there.
