Here guys,

Here are my current cpu specs:

AMD Phenom(tm) 8400 Triple-Core Processor

ATI Radeon 2100

3 GB DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-8500

Acer Motherboard RS740DVF

WDC WD3200AAJS-22B4A0 ATA Device

So if I upgrade my video card to this:

and upgrade to 8GB of memory..

could i possibly run it on max settings or at least decent quality?

get 4 or 6 GB of memory.

if you want good graphics you will need to find at least a 5870 or a 6950. anything else is going to be low-end or mid-range. xfx features lifetime warranties. it is an investment...

crossfire 6970's are running good.

thanks for the reply.. the card I linked is:

EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT Video Card - 1GB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Support, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support

I have a PCIe 1x so I don't think I have too many options anyways
