i bought a pc about a year ago and found out it had a terrible graphics card ;(.

i have around £100 give or take abit and would go for performance over quality.at the moment ive tried to play game like crysis and bioshock with minimum graphics and they still lag like hell.... although it handles unreal tournement 3 on minimum settings fairly smooth.


Its an Acer Aspire M3201
AMD PHENOM x4 9150e
2GB DDR2 RAM
300Watt Power Supply
Integrated ATI HD 3200
MotherBoard is Acer RS780HVF

please help theres soo many out there.

also ne1 know any good 2gig ram sticks out ther.

thanks

I'm pretty sure a 4870 would be bottlenecked by your CPU..not to mention 300W probably isn't enough..

From the other thread; http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...


ty again 1 more thing is this probably the best possible card to get without basically building a new pc? and would it be able to run new games respectably? eg unreal tournement 3?
