Need some advice on updating my computer.. Tags: Graphics Cards Battlefield Computer Hewlett Packard Graphics Last response: December 30, 2011 2:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Misanthrop December 30, 2011 1:46:20 PM Hi I recently bought a new computer (Yesterday) it was a HP Pavillion H8-1170uk I mainly bought it for gaming and to have a computer up to spec for at least a couple of years. My main goal is to play BF3 on Ultra settings.. I was wondering what the biggest PSU and Graphics card I can possibly fit in there is... At the moment Medium settings works ok with BF3 but obviously knowing that I can run BF3 on ultra settings which would give me some complacency ...The current GPU in the computer is a "Dedicated" 3GB Geforce 545 The current PSU is an OEM HP PSU at a Max of 436 Watts... Mobo: Motherboard ID: 63-0100-000001-00101111-062311-Chipset$0AAAA000_VER: CHG711.ROM VCHG7.11 Motherboard Name: Pegatron 2AB5 OS: Windows 7 Home premium. CPU: Intel QuadCore i-7 2600 @ 3.40Ghz Mem: 8GB of DDR3 with two more availible slots. Preferably would like a corsair 700W PSU, but I can't find any with two 8 Pins, unless it's actucally a 1200W which is excessive in my opinion. 23" HD monitor.. My budget is around 800 dollars...

CDdude55 December 30, 2011 2:02:12 PM With an $800 budget you can grab a GTX 580(http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Mini-HDMI-Lifetime-Warranty-...) and a nice Corsair AX 850w PSU (http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Professional-850-Watt-Cer...), granted, i am not sure how much space you have inside that system, so you might have to do some measuring. Though really since you'll have about $113 left you could always migrate everything to a new case that will fit everything a lot better and probably cool everything a lot better too.
