  1. I use a Geforce GTX460 and it runs my games great at 1680x1050resolution. I can't always have max settings but I don't have to give much up. Anything at or greater than my card should work perfect for you.

    If you do upgrade your power supply make sure its from a decent brand and has one of those 80Plus Certifications
  2. Try to be more specific about your budget. Also, what kind of games?
  3. And what PSU do you plan to upgrade to??

    The game I would really like to play is Witcher 2. As far as my budget maybe around 200$.

    Thanks for the reply I well look into it!
  7. Right now, my Radeon HD 5770 is runningg Witcher 2@1920x1080 on high few setting off, but its running smooth, up to 37FPS, but at that resolution probably will do better. To run it, I think you might need to upgrade the PSU for sure, right now this is a hard to say NO deal honestly, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044&cm_re=earth_watts_650-_-17-371-044-_-Product , for the GPU you have like 135 left check this out, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150447
    Nvidia http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814134130
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161378
    IF you find a decent PSU on a deal for like $45-50, then get one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130591
