Hello,
I have amd 5200+ and asus m2n68am mobo.. which i cannot upgrade at the moment. I have corsair 400w psu and 3gb ddr2 667 ram and a crt 17" monitor. suggest me a good graphic card which can run crysis, farcry2, mw2, and all the latest games. I am thinking of ati 4850. I dont have any graphic card right now .

you would need an ati 5750 or 5770 then. although dx10 and dx11 games currently look pretty much the same

depends on the game but it will have a bottleneck effect on it.

Your motherboard can support Athlon II and Phenom II processors if you want something better. Even an Athlon II x2 would be a worthwhile upgrade.

As long as you have updated BIOS, your motherboard should be able to support the Athlon II and Phenom II dual cores(though I'm not sure about the quad cores).You can go for them if you feel that your current CPU might bottleneck the 4850.

It can handle the quads as well.
