  1. You definitely need a better video card, what's your budget?

    What resolution is your monitor?

    What is the make and model of your 680w power supply?
  2. It looks good, just slap in a new graphics card and make sure your psu can handle it and you should be golden.
  3. My Resolution is i think this is correct: 1360x768 is that what you wanted? lol sorry im noob at all this and my Power supply Brand i dont know :S if i opened it up again what should i look for and umm whats a really good Graphics Card But not too expensive not over $280 ?

    and thank you so much for replying XD.

    I have been Looking and found this: Amaze Radeon HD6850 1GB Game Video Card Dual-Link DVI HDMI AMD ATI 1024MB :BRAND NEW Amaze AM6850-DDDP2H-1024D5 Radeon HD6850 Video Card
    1GB/1024MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI-E 2.1/2.0 16x DVI HDMI
    775MHz Core Clock, 4000MHz Memory Clock, DirectX 11 Support is that way better than mine or little or crap?

    Reply Please Very keen to play good games xD Thank you.
  4. that's way better than yours and will work brilliantly and will probably max all games if you play at the resolution.
  5. So i should definitively get it are you positively sure it will work on my computer? and fit Please answer

    Thank you :).

    Also can you give me a good Example of what it could run in ULTRA like say Counter Strike Source and Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 or 3 and Battlefield 2 or 3 :). lol and also what you mean by play at the resolution my Computer Screen or what LOL im really crap at this stuff Please Reply Back

  6. it should work fine with your computer. I think its a good card for your price range and what you need for it. If your case is a normal case and not a mini case like those hp minis you should have no problem fitting a 6850 in there as its a pretty normal sized card.
  7. Ok thanks heaps :) but would you be able to refer me to even better cards than that. like what would be better than the 6850 but still Not too expensive!

    Thank you.

    Cause iv'e been hearing that Nvidia Flogs Amd and all that O.o :S

    and last question !) I go to Start - Computer - Properties - Windows Experience Index and it shows i have
    DirectX 10) But then i go to Start - Run - type DXDIAG - and it shows i have DirectX 11 Weird :S

    the one above the 6850 is the 6870 which is usually $30 more expensive above that would be the gtx 560ti which is about $50 more than the 6870, above the 560 ti is the 6950 for about $10 more. they are all priced pretty aggressively in term of performance/$ so any of them should do. there is also the 560(non ti) which is basicly the same as the 6870 if you want an nvidia card for that price.
