I'm looking to upgrade my computer but I need to know what to get and what it will run with these things.
Current computer, Dell Inspiron 570-factory everything with 4 gigs of RAM, factory graphics card-HORRIBLE, AMD Athlon™ II X2 Processor 250 (3.0GHz, 1M, 2C), screen is a VGA connected 1600X900.
Looking to get a few more gigs so 6 or 8 gigs of RAM, EVGA - GeForce GTX 550 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Card and a new power supply like 450W. Should I also get a new processor? I'm not looking for hardcore or serious gaming, I just want to be able to run all medium level games like Anno 2070 at max settings and some higher up games at OK or good settings-not Crysis 2 at 90 fps on max. So what will my computer run with this new stuff and should i consider anything else-(new processor?)
No, don't get that card, I don't recommend it. I recommend you 6770/5770 1GB only, because that'd save money much (preferably for your upgrade of your CPU). Your card is maybe $150, while 6770/5770 1GB is maybe just below $120. Therefore it has the same performance. 2GB is also useless at your resolution really.
Wow, the one I submitted above was 199$ at bestbuy. So this thing is compatible with my computer and it will run the same for about 80$ cheaper? Again in the way of CPUs do you have any recomedations for my computer that would be compatible? One more thing, the card I am getting was this one-it says its overclocked on the box.
But this card will play even BF3? If so, what settings-again im not looking for maxed out with a high frame rate, im fine with playing High end games on med settings to get a smooth frame rate. And Im assuming the power supply you gave me will suport the card well?
