Don't flame me :P

Dont laugh i know i got it from walmart but it was cheap for what i originally needed it for but now i need to play games on it :)

AMD Athlon II dual-core processor
4gb RAM
Nvidia 6150se.
500gb HDD

I know im gonna need to upgrade the psu.

Is there any card that is even worth spending the money to upgrade it. I play Aion on this thing and its running a onboard 6150 se so it looks terrible.

I'm gonna build another pc but i need something better for this one for the fiance we want to play together.

Was looking at the Radeon 4870 originally but i think the width would be a little to much.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for you time in advance.

More about what options
  1. These slim line PC's have severe fitting issues with normal cards. I dont know what would fit coz i dont know the depth of the cabinet.

    Also, which AMD dual core processor? RAM config would be helpful.

  3. Well your processor wont get you very far, its barely faster than a Celeron, wont play multi-threaded games at all.. Word of advice, don't get these piled up configs. They are a waste.

    To your questions, you don't have much option. Keep it as a secondary PC, save some money and get a a new one.
