im trying to play the new games on my PC, and some older ones too (black ops/F12011 and old racing/FPS)
but the PC is struggling with them, im not blessed with mountains of cash so major upgrades (much needed I know) are not on the cards, however im looking to upgarde the GPU to increase in game performance, and have almost settled on this
will there be any point on getting this and not a lesser card? will other components just restrict the GPU? and are there better (Nvidia) alternatives?

post your full system specs pls.
2.2ghz on a phenom will bottleneck that card, but you should still be able to run it if this is the best upgrade right now for your system, but without specs listed, then we wont have much to go on cept your cpu. also pls post resolution you want to game at
