Hello everyone, I bought my computer about 3 years ago and in anticipation of some games coming up I really am looking to upgrade. I would like to upgrade my video card and my RAM but I am very uneducated on the topic of computer hardware. If anyone could spare a few minutes to look at my computer spec's and help me determine a plan of action that would be greatly appreciated. My price range for the video card is about 100-150, and the RAM 50-100. I don't know what video card to buy that is compatible with my computer, same with the RAM. Any opinions or information regarding what i should buy is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Here are my specs:

HD6850 would fit your budget and be the max card I would match with that CPU.
Because they show up as 2 cards in windows device manager!

The three brands does not differ in performance that much since you can overclock them. Try to choose the one with the best cooling method.

as far as i know, the HIS cooler is good. So if you have a cramped up case, it would be better to get the HIS brand. Otherwise, id go for the Gigabyte.
