I am buying an HP Pavillion p6310f


Operating system
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Processor
AMD Athlon II 630 Quad-Core Processor

Memory
6GB

Memory speed
PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM memory (3x2048MB)


It comes with a geforce 9100. What do I need to play games that won't break me.

Depends on your resolution and your budget. I would factor in a PSU upgrade as the one that comes with your computer is most likely not sufficient.

depending on budget, a gts 250, or a 5770 would be great choices. but as anon said, you will likely need a PSU upgrade.

Something like this would be fine.

or if you want to be really safe

or this but is overkill for a single card

I'd probably go for the second one as it is only $10 more than the first one and you wouldn't need the extra power from the third one.
