Graphics

Hey guys, I've got an HP Pavillion s5212y slimline with windows 7 home premium service pack 1, with an Intel Pentium(R) Dual-Core E5200 CPU that runs at 2.5 GHz, with 3 GB of RAM, 64 bit operating system, and I am pretty sure these settings are sufficient to play Diablo 3 (although at low settings) but my graphics card does not support the game at all (I've currently got an Intel(R) G33/31 Express Chipset Family). Which would be the most appropriately suitable card for my basic needs? I was thinking a cheap one like the GeForce GTx 260 from Nvidia. Thanks for your help, everyone. <333

  1. What is the current power supply?

    Is your case/psu standard atx?

    You mean a used 260? A 260 is not going to run on the stock psu. There are much more efficient and modern choices.
  2. I googled my model's psu and i found this:

    http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=s5212y+power+supply&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=10093026143706961075&sa=X&ei=5Ye2T7iwCsji2gWd9Ky7CQ&ved=0CIMBEPMCMAQ

    Would this be a sufficient upgrade? And, sorry in advance, I am not computer-savvy at all (D:) so what is atx? The tower is pretty compact and small, and can fit comfortably in a 2' x 1' x 6'' space.

    I would definitely have to get it used, 20 year old college student living in a house, albeit with a well-paying job, so money is tight ha.
  3. You'll never be able to run a decent graphics card with that, and it's not standard atx so you can't upgrade it.

    That's the price you pay for buying a proprietary HP computer, it's a throwaway.

    Besides your cpu would bottleneck anything decent cause it's too slow. I could recommend a very low end card but I'm not because I don't want to be responsible it if catches your computer on fire.
