What's your monitor's resolution? Power supply? Can you OC your processor? What's your budget?

you want max settings... and you want it to run smoothly....you need to upgrade the CPU and video card. but yeah, need to know you PSU make/model, motherboard make/model and monitor resolution. For max settings with 1920x1080 resolution a gtx460 or better and phenomII x4 would be a good start.

would agree with the people above who said you need to upgrade your cpu, but at least try to OC it a bit, and If you have an ample power supply(which you need to let us know about) then I would say go for something in the ballpark of a gtx 460 or better. Your cpu will still be holding you back a bit... but you can still have a decent setup with a video card upgrade as previously mentioned but what kind of psu do you have? make and model?

You're pretty much stuck unless you want to upgrade to a high-clocked quad-core athlon or so. The most you want to put with your processor is what you got, an HD5770.

Yes, all CPUs are ZIF (zero-insertion force), meaning it literally drops in. Align the pins right and just drop it it.
