Hello I'm looking to upgrade to a card that can handle the games I run better. MMOs and RTS games, such as Swtor and Tiberium Wars.

My current graphics card is: Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset

and these are my computer's other stats:





I thought I'd be able to run my games moderately smooth since everything was high but the graphics card but its not that good at all. I assume it'll be much better with a better gaming card.

Currently Tiberium Wars is smoothish but it can lag really bad.

Swtor I have on the lowest settings( 800 resolution, low everything, shadows off) and it still lags during many activities even with those cut backs

I want to spend the lowest amount possible to make Tiberum wars not laggy and Swtor run on 1080 and high with a higher fps rate.

Also, it would be nice if the card I got could last me for longer than just these games, so I don't have to upgrade immediately the next game that comes out.

My budgets only about $200-$300 so I don't even know if all that's possible. I'd like the least expensive card that can do if there even is one thank you guys.

as long as your motherboard has a pci express slot, a geforce 560 ti will run swtor on high, and run between 180 to 200ish after rebates...the g41 sound like onboard graphics. youd want to make sure you have a decent power supply too.

Thank you guys for the reply. I wasn't savvy enough to find out where exactly my power supply is listed to post it.

I'm just a little confused, The $70 card seems like it'd be a great buy since its a lot less, but lupine said that the $180-200 one can run the game on high 1080.

My last question is if I can still run it on high with just the $70 card.

Thank you both for the responses, by the way.

Ok, I see what your talking with my computer's dual core capping it out relatively low. Would it be best for me to just get both a graphics card and a core? Would the suggested $200 card be inefficient with my current core?

Jeez am I better off saving money and just getting a new better computer? Sorry kind of confused.
thanks

I would not match your current CPU with a higher end card unless a full upgrade is up in the near future.

I started off at the high end since you were looking for longevity...sorry for causing confusion. I think I'd look at the 6670 in the meantime to get up and going. and then start saving for the next upgrade in mind being new system. there should be a sticker on the power supply with info about it.
