  1. no way i had an 9600GT and barely ran it with good fps at 1024x768 low settings. you need a better video card for it.

    oh but i guess it comes in the minimum requirements..
    what about other games
    like call of duty, saw, resident evil 5, medal of honour?
  3. Everything looks good except that video card, it was a weak card back in 07, I think modern integrated graphics are nearly as powerful and the next generation Sandy Bridge/ Fusion graphics are without a doubt more powerful than an 8400 gs.

    Pick up at the very minimum a Radeon 5670 or Geforce 240 GT, but I would recommend better if you want high definition gaming as the cards I mentioned still won't handle it despite being several times as powerful as an 8400.

    ohk i don't have much of a budget for that.. which one will be low cost and effective?
  5. What is your budget mate, makes a HUGE difference, from 50$ to like 100$. :-)

    around 75 $
  7. ohk tell me around 50-70 $
  8. Umm being British and using UK sites, the only ones i can think, are the GT240 and Radeon 5550? But i know these aint great cards anyways, but someone more familiar from newegg will be able to get better deals than what i can see..

    These are in the 50-75$ catagory..

    GT240

    Radeon 5550

    I am totally unsure if these are Low end gaming cards. I coudl give you prices of gaming cards in the UK, but that defeats the objective here

    at your budget you wont run it a high detail settings and hidef resolutions mate.
  10. Not true.. Realize high def is not very high at all on computers. It's a low/mid (1920×1080 )range res.

    Now the high settings probably not gonna happen but low-medium settings would (depending on the game)
  11. You need a good graphics card like atleast a Radeon 5750 or something.

    Get something in the 5xxx series

    Possibly ATI Radeon HD 5450, 5550, 5670, 5750, 5770

    Depending on your price range, you can get any of those DX11 cards above which you should definitely want since DX11 is the latest and I wouldn't go for anything less. Like I was saying, you should be able to get em anywhere from $40 to $150 bucks

    I myself am getting a 5770 as that's the best bang for the buck atm
  13. the most irritating thing here is not all cards are available even at the largest computer market.. they only have 2-3 to chose.. :(

    Like I said, get something in the 5xxx series by XFX, Sapphire, or other trusted brand
