  1. Please post your full system specs including your current PSU brand, wattage and +12v amperage.
    What resolution are you gaming at?

    The ATI 5770 is your best choice of video card, support DX11 and can play any game under the sun for a year or two. Bear in mind you've got a old Core 2 Duo so there might be sight bottlenecking in performance.
