  1. Without doubt you need a dedicated graphics card, your budget will determine which card but for decent middle of the road something like a GTX460.

    This could result in you having to upgrade your PSU also, what PSU do you have?
  2. How do i find my power supply unit out?
  3. Take the side off your case and have a look at it, it should have a model number somewhere.
  4. I only found this
    electric input:
    230V AC 5A 50Hz
    110V AC 8A 60Hz
  5. actually I just found this:
    System Model:
    D2811-A1
  6. That is not enough information.

    "D2811-A1" is too generic. A Google search comes up with nothing related to a power supply.

    You need to provide the Brand Name, Model, the amount of amps on the +12v rail and total power. Here's an example:



    Brand Name: Seasonic
    Model: SS-400FB
    Amps on +12v rail: 22A
    Total Power: 400w
  7. ^+1 need more psu info, and +1 you need a better vid card.
  8. brand name is Fujitsu Siemens
  9. electric input:
    230V AC 5A 50Hz
    110V AC 8A 60Hz
  10. where can I find the GTX460 for the lowest price in London?
  11. you should have typed that into google mate, would've garnered more response :)
    try skinflint.co.uk or any other comparison sites,
    Moto

    this is absolutely useless information. please read the above posts and try again. There is a post showing CLEARLY what information we need from the PSU, and you are not giving this to us, so we cant help.
  13. there are several factors that would affect your PC performance
    i suggest go get a decent Video Card but buying video card also get another factor specially on PSU
    like usually most VGA nowadays needs PCIE the 6-pin thingy
    and i suggest if you can get your OS to 64-bit and upgrade ram to 8GB
