Hello, at the moment im using a gt530 but i only play Star Wars- The Old Republic which seems ok. but im looking to get back into PC gaming (mainly FPS). just wondering what a descent upgrade would be without breaking the bank. (upto £200)

you will need about a 500 watt power supply to run that...a decent one like corsair, antec,ocz

Just a few more questions? I've noticed that the card ive ordered -( MSI GTX 560 Ti 1024MB DDR5 TWIN FROZR II OC Edition Dual DVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Graphics card )is a OC edition ( i presume that means its a overclocked edition) will i have to any additional messing about apart from installing the card, as i know nothing about overclocking.

And it seems that my card will arrive before my power supply. Is it worth running it with my 450w power or wait til my 600w turns up?

GT 530 is quite a basic card. MSI GTX 560 Ti is the way to go as "Nightwish" suggested
