Hey Guys,

I'm currently running an integrated HD4200 and would like to upgrade. I've come across the HD 3850 by HIS:

Currently i'm playing the Total Ware series (Rome and Medieval 2), Lead and Gold, Football Manager and Battlefield 2.

I own a PS3 and do most of my gaming on there so would this card be suitable for perhaps the newer Romes / less intensive games? Also is HIS a decent manufacturer? Will the card stay cool and how is there warrenty policy?

Also is it compatible with Windows 7 64 bit?

What about the rest of your system?

I have 3 HIS cards and never had a problem with them. They're run cool, especially their IceQ version.

Tell us that first, after that we could make some suggestions for you... :)

Ahh yes. A rookie error omitting those details.

My CPU is a Athlon II x3 435 running at 3.2, 4gb DDR3 1333mhz, Asus m4a785td-v evo, Ocz stealthstream 500w and an old school led monitor. I run games at 1024 x 768 and 1268x 1024 (around that).

Budget...50-60 pounds. Once I get a new screen ill invest in a better card but while I'm using this one I just want a boost in performance.

For temporary until you get a bigger screen, right?
